INEC Assures Use Of BVAS In Governorship & State Assembly Elections

INEC

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), will be used in the governorship and state legislature elections on Saturday, March 11.

Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, Chairman of the commission, gave the assurance on Saturday, during a meeting with all Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.

He confirmed that the BVAS machines are being worked on to avoid a repeat of the claimed glitches recorded during the presidential and national assembly elections.

Yakubu, who said the meeting was to review performances at the last week’s elections, urged the RECs to work harder to ensure that the governorship elections do not experience the same glitches recorded with the last elections while calling for disciplining of staff who err.

He added that there are lessons to be learned from last week’s elections, especially as it relates to logistics management.
