BVAS IReV: Nigeria not ready – APC chair, Adamu
Ahead of the general elections scheduled for 2023, the All Progressives Congress (APC) opposed the use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and the INEC Results Display Portal (IReV), and claims that Nigeria not ready.
The APC’s national chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, made the claim Wednesday while addressing delegations from the Commonwealth Election Observation Mission.
Recall that there were reports that there was a conspiracy to remove Professor Mahmoud, who claimed to use technology to increase the credibility of the electoral process.
He said: “Our concern is how ready we are to deploy some of these technologies in terms of transmission.
“We do not know if the network covers all regions of Nigeria to transfer results. I know that even parts of Abuja don’t have a grid, but between now and February most of the country will have no electricity. ”
Adamu added that INEC must ensure 100% that the new process is ready and reliable.
The party’s National Organization Secretary, Ambassador Suleiman Argungu, also addressed the delegation and echoed Senator Adamu’s line.
Apart from the erratic power supply, he said that in some communities and villages bordering other countries, like Kebbi state, in the last election he said, could not access Nigerian networks such as Glo, MTN and Airtel.
“If you want to get them, you have to use a number from another country to reach them. And as such in the course of the election, I don’t see how the transmission of results will work,” he said.
