In preparations for the smooth and successful conduct of the 2023 general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) has dispatched
Bimodal Voter Accreditation System ( BVAS) to over 23 States.
The National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, has said.
Okoye said the electronic transmission of polling unit-level results is a foregone conclusion because it is part of the national asset and cannot be jettisoned.
According to him, no individual or group can at this moment delegitimise the processes and procedures of the election, “we are marching forward to 2023.”
Okoye noted that the constitution gave backing for the use of BVAS for voter accreditation and that the allegations by 17 political parties on Wednesday that the commission was under pressure to dump the BVAS in the 2023 polls were not true.
The spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate for Ideato Federal Constituency, Ikenga Ugochinyere and CUPP National Secretary and Labour Party candidate for Ankpa/Olamaboro/Omala Federal Constituency of Kogi State, Peter Ameh had alleged that there were plots to truncate the 2023 general elections through evil means, including stopping the electronic transmission of results.
