The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will today approach the Court of Appeal seeking to set aside an earlier ruling concerning the Biometric Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and other sensitive materials used for the February 25 presidential election.
A senior official of the commission, who pleaded not to be named said this at the weekend in Abuja.
This follows a meeting on Saturday between INEC and the RECs to assess the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections and to discuss the March 11 gubernatorial and state assembly elections.
The BVAS must be reconfigured polling units by polling units for the next election, therefore the commission, a law-abiding agency, would ask the Court for permission.
"Because the re-configuration cannot be done without a court order, we must ask the court for permission to accomplish it. The manual re-configuration, which will be deployed to the targeted PUs, must be completed on time, the official said.
In particular, the real-time transmission of aggregated results from the BVAS to the INEC Result Viewing Portal has received mixed reviews, (iReV) according to the Daily Trust .
