Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Sokoto State have complained that the card readers given to them have been failing and, as such, there will be delay in the voting process.

Between 8am and 9am when SaharaReporters visited several polling units in more than four different Local Government Areas, card readers were not working correctly, according to the INEC officials.
