The general elections in 2023 are only about a hundred days away.
INEC Chairman Mahmood Yakubu stated in a statement signed personally on Wednesday that the commission will begin with biweekly briefings and progress to weekly and daily briefings.
Yakubu reaffirmed the commission’s commitment to Nigerians seeking free, fair, credible, and verifiable elections supported by technology, which ensures transparent accreditation and real-time upload of polling unit results for citizens to view on election day.
He insisted that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and the INEC Result Viewing Portal (IReV) would not be scrapped for the 2023 general elections.
