An Information Technology expert, Chimezie Chuta, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of mischief respecting the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) used during the presidential election held recently on February 25, 2023.

Chuta, a graduate of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Tech Innovator and Chief executive officer at Web Print Express, said on his Facebook handle that “INEC Nigeria are scammers and their Chairman needs to be investigated and punished appropriately”.

He noted that the BVAS device can handle 50 elections without configuration and wondered why INEC requested the court’s permission to configure the devices.

According to him, the model of the BVAS devices used by INEC for the presidential elections in Nigeria is “Ekemp M8”, a biometric tablet with a processor (1.3GHz) and a 2 -16 Gigabyte storage space produced by Samsung.

“This simply means that this device can accommodate data for 50 different elections without needing a ‘reconfiguration’.

“Meanwhile, the price of the raw device is just $350.00 apiece.”

“Only me can build that web application in three days and it will function super-excellently!

“Now I’m wondering where they spent the 305 billion Naira approved for the 2023 election.

“Let’s start asking the right questions,” he said.

It could be recalled that INEC had claimed that there were “technical glitches” during the said presidential election and had resorted to manual collation of results.

Consequently, the stipulated electronic transmission of results to INEC server failed completely and almost two weeks after the election, results are still being uploaded manually to the server. Read more.
