PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has alleged that APC has finalised plan to shut down the effectiveness of the smart card reader machines to be deployed in PDP strongholds during the forthcoming polls.
The areas being targeted, according to Atiku, are the south south, south east and north central regions.
Atiku who made the allegation, while addressing the emergency meeting of PDP National Executive Council in Abuja, says that APC had trained some people in China for the purpose.
He further alleges that those trained by APC in China are equipped with a gadget that look like a phone, that will be used in slowing down the card reader machines at the polling centres, in the south south, south east and north central regions.
In contrast, the PDP candidate alleges that the special gadget will be used to fast track the reading of the card reader machines in the north west and north east regions.
