2023: Politicians Can’t Bypass BVAS Through Bought PVCs, Says INEC 


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says politicians buying Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to manipulate the 2023 general elections are engaging in futile efforts.


According to INEC, the Bimodal Voter Registration System (BVAS), the technology that will be used for the accreditation and authentication of voters come 2023, will reject biometric data of persons who are not original owners of the traded PVCs.


“In terms of any politician, bypassing the BVAS, I want to tell you that that will not happen, that is an impossibility,” INEC National Commissioner, Festus Okoye said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.


Recently there has been widespread fears that some politicians have engaged in the practice of voter card purchase in states such as Nasarawa and Plateau States in addition to other forms of inducement aimed at frustrating the collection of PVC or the mutilation of same in some of the states.
