INEC uploads guber, House of Assembly election results via BVAS

1 week ago 14

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has uploaded some of the results of Saturday’s elections via the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS.

The non-use of BVAS for the February 25 election created a confidence crisis for the electoral body, which Nigerians and electoral officials heavily criticised.

DAILY POST observed that the result of Ward 001, Polling Unit 039, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa, was uploaded via BVAS around 1:58 pm.

In the state House of Assembly election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) polled six votes, while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 13 votes.

Bayelsa is one of the few states where governorship polls are held after the general election.

INEC had claimed that it couldn’t upload election results from the polling Units during last month’s presidential and National Assembly elections due to glitches.
