National Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has said the agency has learnt from the Anambra State Governorship election experience, assuring that future polls would be better conducted and managed.

Speaking at an interactive meeting with Online publishers in Lagos on Wednesday, Yakubu maintained that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) it deployed in the recent election in Anambra is reliable.

“In spite of the glitches, BVAS has justified our determination to deepen the deployment of technology in the electoral process.

“I want to reassure Nigerians that we have learnt vital lessons from the Anambra pilot. There will be remarkable improvement in the next major election, which is the end-of-tenure Area Council election in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, schedule to hold in three months on February 12, 2022,” he said.

Yakubu called for the support of the media and all stakeholders in the task of ensuring peaceful and credible because now “elections are held all-year round between one general election and another with no respite. There is no election season any longer in Nigeria.”
