BVAS has come to stay – Atiku



Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, says Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) has come to stay as a legal instrument for the accreditation and transmission of election results in Nigeria.

Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the February 2023 election, said this in a statement by his Media Office in Abuja on Tuesday.

It was in reaction to the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the victory of Gov. Ademola Adeleke of Osun in the state governorship election.

Abubakar said that the introduction of technology in the conduct of elections in Nigeria was a progress that could not be reversed.

“We are all witnesses to the copious references to the BVAS technology in coming up with this judgement.

“The law governing our elections has truly brought power to the people, and those power mongering politicians who believe that they can freely subvert the inherent power of democracy now have their hopes dashed.”

Abubakar urged Nigerians to take keen interest in the growth and development of democracy in the country.

“We must not put the laws in our hands but remain vigilant because, as the saying goes, ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

Abubakar congratulated the people of Osun State for the affirmation of their collective mandate given to Adeleke.
