It also debunked rumours that the commission's database has been hacked.

The INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Ekiti State, Abduganiyu Raji, said this in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital on Thursday, at an "INEC stakeholders' meeting".

He said that the commision's network is highly protected from external threat, stating that this would greatly disappoint those who have allegedly been cloning the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
"Even our workers who are working in the ICT have limitations; there is a limit to which they can go. In clear terms, the cloned PVCs can't work with our smart card readers.

"We heard people are selling their PVCs; this would not help anybody. But how can people be selling their future? Even if you are given a sum of N20,000, would that be enough to take you throughout four years? So, our people must stop selling their future," he said.

"We can’t use criminals to conduct elections or drug abusers and be expecting good results," he added.
