March 18 polls: INEC finally reacts to Labour Party’s request on use of BVAS, reveals fresh position

In another development, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed that political parties cannot serve as a watchdog to the nation’s electoral umpire’s activities.

The INEC national commissioner and chairman of information and voter education committee, Festus Okoye, who said this on Sunday night, March 12, explained that the commission had been created to serve as a regulator for political parties but the reverse seems to be the case.

Okoye insisted that the request by the Labour Party (LP) to monitor the commission’s process of reconfiguring and backing up results on its Bimodal Voter Accreditation System machines (BVAS) would not be granted.
