BVAS will dash hope of dishonest politicians – Atiku


The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the recently concluded general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has said the introduction of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System will dash the hopes of dishonest politicians.

He also added that it has come to stay as a legal instrument for the accreditation and transmission of election results in Nigeria.

Atiku made this known in celebration of the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the victory of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State.

Speaking in a statement issued by his media office, Atiku, while congratulating the people of Osun on their victory said the introduction of technology in the conduct of elections in Nigeria is progress that cannot be reversed.

He said, “We are all witnesses to the copious references to the BVAS technology in coming up with this judgement.

“The law governing our elections has truly brought power to the people, and those power-mongering politicians who believe that they can freely subvert the inherent power of democracy now have their hopes dashed.”

The PDP presidential candidate urged Nigerians to take a keen interest in the growth and development of democracy in the country, noting that “we must not put the laws in our hands but remain vigilant because, as the saying goes, ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
