INEC postpones Guber Polls, Set to Commence BVAS Re-configuration.

INEC Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed the governorship and state assembly elections till Saturday, March 18, 2023.

The polls, earlier scheduled for Saturday, March 11, across 24 States was postponed due to the inability of the commission to officially begin the re-configuration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines used for the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections, to enable their use for the state elections.

According to the report, authoritative sources disclosed that the commission management decided to postpone the election till March 18 following a meeting in Abuja on Wednesday 8 March 2023.

“You know that the BVAS re-configuration would take three or four days and since they would all be moved to the headquarters in Abuja, the machines would be re-configured and deployed to the various states and finally to the polling units,” one of the officials said.
