In a statement made available to newsmen by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi in Ado Ekiti in Ado Ekiti Thursday, said the APC has a hidden agenda for advocating the use of card reader.

He explained that in as much as the usage of the card reader is noble the preparation of the INEC for it has been very poor which is believed to be a conspiracy between the electoral body with the APC if the agitation of the APC on the card reader is anything to rely upon.

Mr Fayose explained that INEC Chairman Professor Attahiru Jega has told Nigerian that the card reader battery can go flat at most five hour which means that unless there is alternative power supply the machine will be rendered useless after the battery has gone flat.

The question now is that will the INEC provide power generators in each of the poling unit in the whole country so that by the time the battery is down the electoral officers could switch to the alternative power; Without this the introduction of the card reader is nonsense.

The governor also said that Nigerian should know that INEC has never hidden the fact that the card readers are internet base in delivery and considering the fact that most of the Nigeria towns and villages are not fixed with internet that means that the card can not deliver until when it get to where there is internet to deliver its result then it means that the usage would be a failure because a lot of contradictory information would have dealt havoc on the entire exercise before the card reader can deliver its results
