The All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to the outrage over Abdullahi Adamu’s comments on Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and INEC Results Viewing Portal (IReV).
Nigerians are condemning the APC National Chairman’s fears over the deployment of the technologies for the 2023 election.
They accuse the ex-Nasarawa governor of opposing the plan by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct credible polls.
A statement on Thursday by APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka said reports about Adamu were false and an unfair misrepresentation of his opinion.
Morka said at a meeting with the Commonwealth pre-election delegation, the chairman only tasked INEC to ensure electricity and telecommunication networks do not affect BVAS and IReV.
“Chairman Adamu did not kick against the deployment of BVAS or electronic transmission of results as erroneously reported by sections of the media.”
He reminded Nigerians that the Buhari administration worked for the successful reform of the Electoral Act, the introduction of (BVAS) among other innovations.
The spokesperson said the government also conducted free and fair elections in Edo, Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States.
The APC and the government remain committed to electoral transparency and democratic consolidation, he stressed.
