The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has reacted to reports making the rounds of the third party in the configuration of card readers.
Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, on Tuesday, addressing the press briefing in Abuja, said no third parties are involved in the configuration of card readers.
He said, "I want to make sure that I am sure that I am sure that I am sure that I am sure that I am sure that I am sure that I am not sure that I am not a party to the Commission.
"The dispatching, white-listing, installation, upgrading of software, the configuration of smart card readers is done entirely by the officials of the Commission.
"So, there is no way any vendor outside can be involved in the configuration of our smart card readers.
"It is not true that anybody is involved in the configuration of the smart card readers in any way.
"This is entirely done by the Commission's IT under the supervision of the state of the art in the field of security."
The INEC boss added that the Commission as of Monday, had achieved 95 percent of the 180,000 smartcard readers and the process would be completed by Wednesday.
The Presidential and National Assembly is expected to hold on Saturday, Feb. 23rd.
