Opposition Parties allege existence of suit seeking to stop use of BVAS in 2023 Elections

A group called Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP says it has unearthed a secret court case seeking to stop the use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS in the 2023 general elections.

The coalition Spokesperson, Ikenga Ugochinyere, in a press conference in Abuja said he is in possession of evidence to back up his claims.

Really?

Yes! Ugochinyere said the vigilance team of the CUPP discovered the suit at the Owerri Federal High court where it has been filed since the 24th of August, 2022. According to him, “chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, is under pressure to announce a change in the commission’s hard stance on the compulsory use of the BVAS machine for accreditation or get sacked as the chairman of the commission”.  

“The third leg of the plot is to sack the National chairman through a suspension as the plotters know they cannot get the required numbers for an outright sack” he added.

What else did the coalition reveal?

CUPP also said they discovered names of foreigners on the delisted national voters register list, which it claimed were part of the fake registration done by one of the political parties, alleging that they were sourced from both within and outside of Nigeria.
