Appeal Court Gives INEC Permission To Reconfigure BVAS

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Appeal Court on Wednesday rejected the request made by Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines used in the presidential election should not be reconfigured ahead of the governorship and state assembly elections this weekend.

 A three-member panel of the appellate court, led by Justice Joseph Ikyegh, gave this directive to the applicant for the purposes of configuring the BVAS for the election on Saturday.

 However, the panel asked INEC to upload data to the back-end server and allow respondents to have access to a true certified copy.

 The African Examiner writes that INEC in its motion filed on March 4, prayed that the  appellate court vary the ex parte order made in favour of the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) concerning the inspection of materials used for the presidential election.

 It could be recalled that the court had on March 3, granted leave to Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party to inspect election materials used by INEC to conduct the just-ended February  25 presidential election.
