The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has asked Nigerians to disregard allegations of manipulation of voters data on the several Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS, used in last Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State.


Recall the Candidate of the Social Democratic Party SDP in the election, Yakubu Murtala, alleged the commission worked with the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to manipulate the data to reflect over-voting in polling units across four local government areas in the state.


However, the National Commissioner and member, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC Mohammed Haruna has said the most accurate and up-to-date voters’ accreditation data was available in the BVAS, which is used for the authentication and accreditation of registered voters at various polling units on election day.
