How Card reader rejects Jonathan again while shooting in Oporoma and thugs in Ekeremor

Just like it happened during the March 28 presidential election, the card reader of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) again rejected the thumbprint of Goodluck Jonathan, former president, in the ongoing Bayelsa state governorship election.

Alongside his wife and mother, Jonathan came to polling unit 039, Ward 13 in Ogbia local government area, located exactly opposite his Otuoke residence, but he could not get accredited via the card reader.

He returned to his house and came back to the polling unit around 10am, about one hour after the initial incident.

This time around, the card reader acknowledged Jonathan and wife but failed to read the biometrics of the mother of the ex-president. An incident form was filled on her behalf before she was manually accredited.
