The court of appeal has granted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) permission to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) ahead of the governorship and state assembly elections.

In the ruling of the court delivered on Wednesday, a three-member panel of the court of appeal led by Joseph Ikyegh, held that restraining INEC would constrain the electoral umpire from conducting the March 11 elections.

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in an application, had approached the court to seek an order of the court “restraining the 1st respondent (INEC) from tampering with the information embedded in the BVAS machines until the due inspection is conducted and certified true copies (CTC) of them issued”.
