The Independent National ELectoral Commission (INEC) has uploaded part of the Saturday’s election results via Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).
The non use of BVAS for the February 25 presidential election had created confidence crisis for the electoral body, which was heavily criticised by Nigerians and electoral officials.
Although the commission cited technical glitch as reason for not using BVAS for result transmission, many critics refused to accept the excuse.
However, the commission promised to improve and make use of the device in the ongoing election.
We observed that the result of Ward 001, Polling Unit 039, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa, was uploaded via BVAS around 1:58pm.
In the House of Assembly election, the All Progressives Congress (APC) polled six votes while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) polled 13 votes.
Bayelsa is one of the states where there is no governorship but state assembly election.
