POLITICIANS ATTEMPT TO MANIPULATE BVAS EFFORTS IN FUTILITY- MIKE IGINI
Former Akwa Ibom State, Resident Electoral Commission, REC, of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Barr Mike Igini has described ongoing attempts by politicians to manipulate the BVAS as “ an exercise in futility”
He made the assertion this Wednesday morning while speaking as a guest on Sunrise Daily, Channels TV current affairs program.
“ We have heard of politicians buying up PVCs or copying details of people’s PVCs.
“That is an exercise in futility. That could have been possible with card readers but not BVAS.
“Front loading of results is not possible with BVAS
Currently, there has been allegations that some politicians are seeking to manipulate the BVAS.
For instance, some days ago, Prince Kassim Afegbua, former aide and spokesman of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP accused Atiku of training people in Dubai to manipulate the BVAS.
Again, across Nigeria, politicians have been buying up PVCs.
