INEC – We’ll Bury Rigging In Nigeria


Head of ICT, INEC office, Awka, Chukwuemeka Nnaji, made the assertion in a paper he presented during a workshop for journalists on election processes and procedures for the 2021 Anambra governorship election, in Awka, yesterday.

In the lecture entitled: “Technological Innovations in the Conduct of Anambra Governorship Election,” Nnaji said INEC has devised what it called Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) as a way of reducing human interference in the electoral process.

“The BVAS would help in accreditation of voters and to enable near real-time viewing of results. The all-in-one technology is a multifunctional integrated device that serves multiple purposes for different activities in the value chain of elections in Nigeria. This includes serving as the INEC Voter Enrolment Device (IVED) during voter registration, serving as the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for voter accreditation on Election Day which replaces the Smart Card Reader, and serving as the INEC Results Viewing Device (IReV Device) to be used for election results upload on Election Day.
