The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced plans to carry out a mock voter accreditation exercise using the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) in 436 polling units across the country. This initiative is intended to serve as a self-assessment mechanism ahead of the upcoming February/March general election. The announcement was made by INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, during a strategy review meeting with National and Resident Electoral Commissioners.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is set to conduct a nationwide mock voter accreditation exercise using its Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) on Saturday, February 4. This exercise will take place in 436 polling units, with 12 units designated in each state of the federation and four in the Federal Capital Territory.
The mock accreditation is being conducted as part of INEC’s self-assessment mechanisms leading up to the February/March general election. The commission also highlighted the high level of engagement shown by Nigerian citizens in collecting their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), with a high collection rate reported in Lagos and other states.
