Alhaji Lai Mohammed has described the 2023 elections as one of the most transparent and credible ever held in the country.
The Minister of Information and Culture, said this on Saturday in his hometown, Oro, near Ilorin Kwara while speaking with newsmen after casting his vote.
The minister voted at about 9.45 a.m. at Polling Unit 006, Oro Ward 2 in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara.
According to him, the introduction of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS was a game changer in tackling the issues of multiple accreditations, voting, and rigging.
“With what I have observed both in the February 25 and today’s elections, there has been a remarkable improvement in the performance of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Without any doubt, the introduction of BVAS has been a game changer in the sense that with BVAS, you are able to get the actual number of people who are accredited.
Also with BVAS, it is now not possible for you to vote twice because your biometrics and facial are captured.
That explained why though INEC said there were 84 million voters in Nigeria, the last election showed that only about 24 million people cast their votes,” he said.
