Abuja - Niger State Governor Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to give a clear directive as to what mode of voting would be adopted for the April 11 governorship and House of Assembly elections, Vanguard reports.

Aliyu described the confusion experienced in the recent presidential election as regrettable, stating the cause of the confusion as being due to the use of card readers alongside the manual accreditation process.
