The National Electoral Commission INEC says the recent attacks on its facilities won’t stop the conduct of 2023 general election.

The National Electoral Commission INEC says the recent attacks on its facilities won’t stop the conduct of 2023 general election.

The INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, said this when he received a delegation from Africa Union Special Pre- Electoral Political Mission, led by Phumzile Mlambo- Ngcuka, in Abuja.

Yakubu, who acknowledged that some election materials for 2023 general election were lost in the attacks, said that INEC would replace them ahead of the election.

Yakubu further said that the deployment of Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS, and the Results Viewing Portal for voter accreditation and uploading of PU results on real time had come to stay.

Yakubu said there was no going back on the deployment of those technologies, because it was a requirement of the law making it mandatory for INEC to do so.
