Nigeria not ready for BVAS, electronic transmission of results – APC Chairman Adamu
Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed fear over the deployment of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for the 2023 general election.
Adamu said he doubts that the introduction of BVAS by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the transmission of the election would produce a fair result.
He identified the challenges of network failure and electricity problems as major hindrances that could mar the use of the technology for the 2023 elections.
“First, I was privileged to serve as a senator. But our concern is how ready are we to deploy some of these technologies as regards transmission because we are taking a major step in transmitting election results in real-time.
“To transmit results, every part of the nation – Nigeria, I’m not sure that the network covers it, I know that even in parts of Abuja, there is no network and we have from now till February when in substantial parts of the country, there is no electricity,” he said on Wednesday in Abuja.
