The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has assured the Ondo State governorship poll will still go ahead as slated, despite the fire incident that burnt the Card Readers meant for the October 10 election.

INEC National Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, said that the 5100 Card Readers programmed for use for the election were razed in the inferno that broke out on Thursday night.

He said that investigation is on to unravel the cause of the fire. The INEC Chair made the disclosure during an interactive session with stakeholders and Civil Society Organizations, convened by the National Peace Committee.
