APC Doubts Feasibility Of Usage Of BVAS For The 2023 Polls
The APC has doubted the feasibility of the use of BVAS technology by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the transmission of the results of the 2023 polls.
INEC plans to deploy Biomodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) and polls results viewing platform, for the conduct of the polls.
But the APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, said that Nigeria was not ripe for the use of such technology for the conduct of general polls.
Adamu expressed his doubts on Wednesday while receiving a delegation of the commonwealth observers mission in his Abuja office.
According to the APC National Chairman, transmission of polls results in real time, would not be feasible for now in Nigeria, because of lack of power supply and telecommunication network in some parts of the country.
For INEC to insists on the use of technology to transmit results, Adamu said it has to guarantee 100 percent telecommunication network and capacity to recharge its batteries in locations where there is no power supply.
