BVAS not compromised, exposed over voting in Osun – INEC


The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Resident Electoral Commissioner for Osun State, Dr Mutiu Agboke has revealed that it was the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machine that exposed that there was over voting in the Osun 2022 gubernatorial election.

This is as Agboke also debunked insinuations that the BVAS was used for voting.

This latest reaction is coming on the heels of the judgment of the Osun guber election petition tribunal on Friday which established that there was over voting during the Osun 2022 guber poll.

While noting that the BVAS machine was only used for voter accreditation, the Osun INEC boss noted that the inadequacies identified will make the vote of the people of Osun count during the general elections.

Agboke made this known during a visit to Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo on Tuesday.

According to him, “Some people did deliberately bypass the BVAS verification due to corrupt politicians and the connivance of INEC adhoc staff.
