BREAKING: Politicians trying to hack BVAS, servers – INEC raises alarm

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said politicians are trying hard to hack into its Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the Commission reiterated its resolve to make the 2023 general elections free and fair, adding that it is working round the clock to ensure that the integrity of its server is maintained during and after the 2023 elections.

INEC’s Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, Achumie Chuka Rex, stated this recently at a two-day workshop for civil society organisations on Voter Education, organised by Transition Monitoring Group (TMG).

“There is no room to hack into INEC sever,” Chuka said.  “Politicians are doing everything possible to get into INEC server or even to manufacture BVAS but unfortunately for them, INEC is three steps ahead of their plots.”

Furthermore, dispelling fears of a network problem that would make BVAS work effectively in rural areas, the INEC official said that BVAS was built on a dual basis – “online and offline”.
