Influential Nigerians Working Against Electronic Voting – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday raised concern over efforts by some influential Nigerians to undermine electronic voting.

According to INEC, some persons are working hard to undermine the use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for future elections.

This is coming just as the commission has also raised the alarm over the activities of hackers in its operations.

The commission stated that since 2015, hackers have been trying to get into its system in order to compromise the electoral processes without success.

The resident electoral commissioner (REC) in charge of Akwa Ibom State, Barrister Mike Igini and director ICT at INEC headquarters, Chidi Nwafor made the revelations during a stakeholders’ roundtable on electoral technology organised by Yiaga Africa in Abuja.

Igini, who first spoke, said: “The problem we are having in this country has to do with people who are out to undermine it. As we are working on the BVAS, people are out there to undermine it.

“They are out there to undermine the process and we do nothing about it. There is an urgent need to bring people (who violate the process) to face the law.
