INEC sticks with BVAS as Soludo gets Certificate of Return

In the recently concluded Anambra State Governorship election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) pledged to continue using the Bimodal Voter Accreditation system.

The commission's office in Awka will present Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance and his deputy governor-elect with their Certificates of Return on Friday, according to INEC on Friday (Yesterday).

Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, said this in a statement released late Thursday in Abuja.

Okoye said, "After the supplementary election in Ihiala Local Government Area on Tuesday November 9, 2021 and before the process was concluded, the commission commenced a preliminary review of the functionality of systems, particularly the newly introduced BVAS. The system performed two functions on election day.

"First is the accreditation of voters using both the fingerprint and facial authentication. Secondly, it snaps the polling unit level result sheets and uploads them in real-time to the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal.

"This aspect of the BVAS functionality performed optimally such that by the early hours of Sunday morning, results from 4,987 indicating 88.5 percent out of 5,634 polling units had been uploaded for public view.

"While still in the field, our ICT team responded to the identified glitches in the accreditation of voters and corrected them.

"We will carry out an in-depth examination of the system, review reports from accredited observers and the media and respond to all identified challenges ahead of the next major Area Council election in the Federal Capital Territory, held on February 12, 2022."
