INEC Postpones Governorship, House of Assembly Election
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that the governorship election, initially scheduled for Saturday, March 11, has been postponed by one week to March 18.
In a statement Wednesday night and released by the National Commissioner & Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Barr. Festus Okoye, the commission cited the need for time to reconfigure the Biometric Verification and Authentication System, BVAS, used for the Presidential election held on February 25, 2023.
The statement explained that the BVAS can only be activated on the specific date and time of an election, and therefore, requires reconfiguration for activation on the date of the governorship and State Assembly elections.
“For instance, the BVAS can only be activated on the specific date and time of an election.
“Having been used for the Presidential and National Assembly elections on 25th February 2023, it is necessary to reconfigure the BVAS for activation on the date of the governorship and State Assembly elections,” the statement read in part.
