Another person was hilarious as he brought out his ATM card instead. He saw some people at a newspapers' stand and posed the same question. Only one person was able to produce his card.
As a reward, he gave the man N10,000 cash. Others were too surprised to even react.

INEC deploys more PVC machines
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday, June 10, announced that it deployed more voter enrolment machines to ease the congestion at the registration centres in the five southeastern states, Lagos and Kano state.
A statement by the commission which was seen by Legit.ng said that the electoral body identified the need to deploy additional enrolment machines in these states as a priority.
Signed by Festus Okoye, the chairman of information and voter education committee for INEC, the statement said that the commission had received reports from these states indicating an unprecedented surge in the number of citizens who wish to register as voters and the challenges they face across the country.
