With the attendant complains of failure of the INEC DDC machine to capture the fingerprints of persons across registration units in the 36 states of the federation.
It has become a source of worry by communities especially in Taraba State where DDC machines hardly register 20 to 30 persons per day. In Jalingo Local Government Area, the FGGC registration unit of KONA ward face the same problem of DDC failures as the machine takes 1 hour to rest after it manages to register at least 5 persons.
Similarly in Jen Ardido Ward at DOLI/BALI registration Units of Karim Lamido Local Government Area, the DDC machines is recording fingerprints failure as quarter of the eligible voters in the area are yet to be registered nearly one week after the commencement of the exercise. The question now is, can INEC deliver on its promise of conducting a free and fair election in Nigeria come April 2011 general elections?
