Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has stated that the commission has learned from the Anambra State Governorship election experience and that future polls will be better conducted and managed.
Yakubu said the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) he used in the recent election in Anambra is reliable, during an interactive meeting with online publishers in Lagos on Wednesday. Also Read: Anambra APC kicks over member’s return to PDP
Despite the hiccups, BVAS has validated our commitment to expanding the use of technology in the election process.
“I want to tell Nigerians that the Anambra pilot taught us valuable insights. “The next major election, the end-of-tenure Area Council poll in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, scheduled for February 12, 2022, would show significant improvement,” he said.
Because “elections are held all-year round between one general election and another with no respite,” Yakubu urged for the media’s and all stakeholders’ help in guaranteeing peaceful and credible elections. In Nigeria, there is no longer an election season.”
