Why APC is afraid of BVAS – Aniagwu

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that over 200,000 Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS)will be used in the 2023 general elections.

According to the spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council, Charles Aniagwu, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was afraid of INEC’s decision to deploy the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) because the device would expose the party to ridicule following their abysmal performance since 2015.

Aniagwu stated on Focus Nigeria on AIT yesterday that the APC fought hard to ensure that the law supporting the deployment of technology in the electoral process was not passed in the National Assembly.

He said: “The PDP is very much disposed to the use of BVAS and can never be part of those planning to bring down the INEC Chairman because we believe that he is doing his best to improve on our electoral process.

“The APC candidate and their members were not comfortable with the use of BVAS and you will recall when the National Assembly was debating on the Electronic Transfer of Result, the Deputy President of the Senate who is governorship candidate of the APC in Delta, Ovie Omo-Agege and many others vehemently opposed that particular innovation and that is to tell you that the APC are not too comfortable with the BVAS.

“BVAS is going to be a game changer and as a party we are very confident that we will win through normal voting and we are hopeful that the votes of Nigerians will count.

“The INEC Chairman and his team have done so well, they may have their pitfalls as human beings but one can rate them far above average on the reforms they have brought to bear on our electoral system.

“And to a large extent I want to believe that they have been quite neutral in the electoral process we are having at the moment.”
