BVAS: On February 4, INEC To Conduct mock accreditation in Delta
The Biamodal Voter Accreditation System, or BVAS, mock accreditation will take place on February 4, 2023, according to the Delta State Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
The fake accreditation, according to a statement from Mr. Bukola Ojeme, acting Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, INEC Delta State, is intended to advance the technical assessment of the device as part of the general election preparations.
The simulated accreditation exercise would take place in 12 particular voting units spread over the state’s three senatorial districts and six local government areas, according to the announcement.
The statement stressed that only registered voters with Permanent Voter Cards, or PVCs, in the appropriate polling units were eligible to participate in the mock accreditation, which would start at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.
The commission said the exercise would be a step further in determining the functionality of the accreditation system on the ground and urged participating registered voters to follow the directions of the officials deployed for the exercise for a good conclusion.
The commission promised that the results of the exercise would be made public and urged the populace to maintain calm and orderly behavior within and around the perimeter of the pretend accreditation exercise.
