Why February 25 Will Be Nigeria’s Most Credible Presidential Election

OpenLife Nigeria reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission , INEC, has exposed its final strategy to ensure that the February 25 presidential and other subsequent elections slated for 2023 become the most credible in the political history of Nigeria.
This assurance came against the backdrop of the deploemet of technoly to ensure true reflection of accurate counting of votes.
The Commission which imported additional Bimodal Voters Accreditation System machines that will be deployed nationwide in all the polling units for the 2023 elections, took delivery of the last batch of the machines at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Tuesday saying it is in line with its contingency provisions for all critical election materials.
To avoid error, the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye said that 176,846 polling units would receive a BVAS each, adding that each registration area amounting to 8,809, would also get at least two BVAS as backup in case of malfunction, bringing the total to over 194,464 BVAS machines.

Okoye said “We have 176, 846 polling units in Nigeria. All of them will have a BVAS. Some polling units may still have more than 750 registered voters. We shall deploy additional BVAS to such polling units.
“We have 8,809 registration areas in Nigeria. Each one will have at least two BVAS for purposes of quick intervention in cases of sustained malfunction of BVAS in any of the polling units in each electoral ward.’’
These backups, in the estimation of stakeholders, are the needed assurance for a credible poll in the much awaited election.
