Senate President Bukola Saraki on Saturday lamented the malfunctioning of card readers at some polling stations in Kwara State .

He also decried low voter turnout in the state, compared to what obtained during the February 23 presidential / National Assembly election .

Saraki arrived at his polling unit (006 ) at Ajikobi Ward, Agbaji area of Ilorin West Local Government Area at about 11 . 07 am to cast his vote.

He was accompanied by his wife, Toyin , who also cast her vote immediately after her husband . The duo left almost immediately after voting .

The card reader is the best thing that has happened to our election. Before the card reader voting was a waste of time because politicians would have written bloated figures somewhere. In those days, one candidate would score 26 million votes from 12 million voters. Now things have changed. Since the card reader is able to transmit data, it has become a viable tool to double-check and validate actual number of voters.This is why you see disruption of voting, which is done to avoid opponents having votes, since now the politicians know that votes can count!

Again, the card reader is a tool that may fail, like any technology, so since we cant trust human beings (and nobody really wants to trust politicians) we have to rely on machines.

INEC going forward should look for how to get better accuracy using the card reader. Like every technology, there has to be updates, so lets have card reader 2.0 and 3.0 and so on....

Let us not allow the leaders to truncate the use of technology, till of course, we have a better technology.

There is low voter turnout everywhere. The reason is simple. Nigerians put a high premium on who becomes president and care less about who becomes the LG chairman...The lower you go the less the stakes! It is just the way we are! This is why devolution is important. Most of the northerners in Lagos did not come out today because they simply care less who becomes the Governor here.

cheesy

Saraki my G

I love this guy

He does not show any form of failure or weakness

He is always on top of his game

He's going to come back as a powerful politician than he is now.

firstly, I'm Yoruba and he has attained one of the highest position in the country the SP, and even if he doesn't take any political office again,he has achieved enough,
PA to former president obasanjo
8years governor of kwara state
Senator in the 7th national assembly
Senate president of the 8th National Assembly.

If I can achieve that, I can happily die cause I have lived a fulfilled life.

Pple don't believe in INEC again because they believe even with their votes, those who will win, will still win so what is the need of voting.
