Ahead of the November 11 gubernatorial elections in Bayelsa State, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has promised that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) will be used for the accreditation of voters and transmission of results.

Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Obo Effanga, at a press briefing said nothing has changed in the process of elections in Nigeria, insisting the governorship election will be conducted based on provisions of the Constitution, the Electoral Act, and INEC guidelines.

According to him, votes will be counted at the polling units, recorded in the physical result sheets, snapped on BVAS, taken to the collation centre where the results would be authenticated, while the photograph taken will be uploaded onto the IREV.

Effiong also gave assurances that his team would do their best to conduct a credible election in line with the Electoral Act.
