National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has expressed their concern over the proposed use of Bimodal Voter Accreditation System for the 2023 general election.
While speaking when a delegation for Commonwealth on the 2023 General Election paid a courtesy visit to the party’s secretariat in Abuja recently, Adamu said he doubts if the introduction of BVAS for transmission of election in real time would produce a fair result for Nigeria in the 2023 elections.
He noted that unless INEC is prepared to confirm to the ruling APC and Nigerians that they are 100 per cent ready, the proposed use of the technology would be shrouded in doubt.
Adamu said: “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.
“INEC must assure us 100 per cent that as of when due in transmitting results, they are ready because they spoke about recharging batteries. But we heard in previous elections when it says it can’t recharge.”
