According to a recent report by the European Union, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has failed to provide evidence of election data being deleted from the BVAS stored on its back-end server. This comes as a major concern for the integrity of the electoral process in Nigeria.
The BVAS, or Biometric Voter Accreditation System, is a crucial component of the electoral process, used to verify the identity of voters and prevent electoral fraud. The European Union’s report raises questions about the transparency and accountability of INEC in managing this crucial system.
INEC has yet to respond to these allegations, but it is clear that more needs to be done to ensure the integrity of the electoral process in Nigeria. The European Union’s report serves as a reminder of the importance of transparency and accountability in democratic institutions.
