Akeredolu maintained that the replacement of the destroyed gadgets especially the card readers would be of great cost particularly in less than a month to the governorship election.

It would be recalled that the fire outbreak occured at about half past eight yesterday and destroyed the two containers where the card readers meant for the conduct of the state governorship election slated for October 10 were kept.

The INEC Resident electoral commissioner, Ambassador Rufus Akeju appreciates the governor’s visit, adding that effort is on to know the cause of the fire outbreak.
