#AnambraDecides: Ozigbo asks INEC to extend time of election over technical glitches

Valentine Ozigbo, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Anambra governorship election, has appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to extend the duration of the exercise owing to reported glitches with the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).

The malfunctioning of BVAS has been reported in some polling units across the state.

Reacting to this development at his polling unit, Ozigbo said INEC should ensure that the glitches are fixed so as to enable eligible voters to cast their vote.

He appealed to Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of INEC, to deploy officials to all the 21 LGAs in the state to correct the technological hiccups.


“We recognise the peculiarities in the election, what that means is that if we need to extend the voting time, so we don’t allow people who are eligible not to cast their own vote, it would be unfortunate,” he said.

“So, I’m not only commenting on the situation, I’m also by this appealing to INEC and all the stakeholders to exercise patience and ensure the right people who have all the authentication cast their votes.

“That’s the only way we can truly ensure that this election is by the people; by the greater Nigerians. We need more people to get their votes in.


“I’m by this appealing to the chairman of INEC that you reach out to your team in the various 21 local governments. Check where we have issues. Because right now there is no more instance form. There is no where to complain.”
