 INEC reviews presidential election assures of full deployment of BVAS in guber polls

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) will be used in the forthcoming governorship and state legislature elections.

The Chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, gave the assurance on Saturday during a meeting with all Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.

He confirmed that the BVAS machines are being worked on to avoid a repeat of the glitches recorded during the presidential and national assembly elections.
