INEC to conduct ‘mock accreditation’ ahead February polls
The Independent National Electoral Commission has revealed that it will conduct mock accreditation nationwide ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, made the disclosure on Tuesday while speaking at the Chatham House, London.
He said the mock accreditation would be carried out across selected polling units to ascertain the integrity of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, before the main elections begin in February.
Yakubu, however, further revealed that every BVAS machine deployed across the 774 local government had been tested, adding that the functionality of the machines was impressive.
He also stated that back up machines have been readily provided in case of system glitches.
