Courts Grants INEC Permission To Reconfigure BVAS

The Court of Appeal has granted INEC permission to reconfigure BVAS.

The Court of Appeal granted INEC’s request because the electoral body said all data in BVAS machines would be transferred to a back end server before they are reconfigured and will not be tampered with.

The Applicants have also been granted permission to inspect BVAS.

The court also ordered INEC to allow the Applicants to inspect and carry out digital forensic examination of all the electoral materials used in the conduct of the elections, as well as to avail them the Certified True Copy, of result of the physical inspection of the BVAS.

The INEC deposed in their affidavit that the accreditation data will not be tampered with.
