The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is used to manipulation and wants to continue in the same vein, saying the ruling party is jittery about the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).

The Independent National Electoral Committee (INEC) has insisted that it will deploy BVAS in the 2023 elections.

APC National Chairman, Adamu Abdullahi had on Wednesday said “first, I was privileged to serve as a senator. Our concern is how ready are we to deploy some of these technologies as regards transmission because we are taking a major step in transmitting election results in real-time”.

Reacting to this, the Director of Strategic Communications of the PDP Presidential campaign organizations, Dele Momodu, while interacting with journalists, expressed surprise that “in this time and age, APC will still want us to operate analogue elections”.

He said the world has gone digital and anything that will eliminate political thuggery, cheating and rigging should be supported.

“So for APC to say it does not support it. There should be no transmission of results from voting points. It’s like sending us back 50 years ago into antiquity. At PDP we will support transparent elections only,” Momdu added.

“So APC is very jittery about it. And the world can see who is jittery. APC is very jittery, and we will defeat them. There’s no doubt about that.

He expressed hope that INEC would not be bullied into accepting what would be so dangerous for Nigeria.
