Card ​R​eader ​rejects Governor Ngilari

Bala Ngilari

A mild drama ensued at one of the designated voting centres for Internally Displaced Persons​ at Modibbo Adama University of Technology in Yola, as the card reader failed to capture the biometrics of the State Governor, Bala Ngilari.

Speaking to journalists shortly after the card reader machine failed to get his thumb print, Mr. Ngilari said “I am disappointed in the process, since the card reader can reject the number one citizen of the state, I am so concerned about our people who are IDPs. They trekked kilometres only to be disenfranchised by card reader. This is snail-speed process,” Mr. Ngilari said.
