All Progressives Congress(APC), Osun State has raised alarm over plans to hack Independent National Electoral Commission card reader.

This allegation was made during world press conference by the Osun State APC chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun at the Party's Secretariat, Osogbo.

Prince Famodun while addressing the press said, "Some electoral criminals have perfected a rigging technique to compromise the electronic card reading machine of INEC and disables its ability to properly identify ownership of the PVC.


According to him, "This rigging technique had been used successfully during the last Osun West Senatorial bye-election, which resulted in the PDP having more votes than it would have had legitimately.

“These electoral criminals are conniving with Corps members in charge of the devices during accreditation process.

“Encouraged by their success during the last senatorial bye-election in the Osun West senatorial district, the criminal riggers now plan to extend their operation throughout the state on Saturday during the governorship election.

“As a result of this, the APC is urging INEC to allow party agents scrutinise the verification process in order to confirm the PVC holder’s image on the card reader.

“We are also urging security agencies to be on alert and get themselves involved in the process so that the youth corps members who will be used to perform this fraud during verification will be under strict observations.”
