We’re Not Against Use of Technology – APC

APP ADS 2 WILL WORK

November 25, (THEWILL) – The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the party is not opposed to the deployment of modern technology in the 2023 elections.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Felix Morka, made the disclosure on Thursday, in Abuja.

Morka, apparently, was responding to media reports that the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has expressed doubts about the use of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and the INEC Election Result Viewing Portal (IReV) in the 2023 elections.

Adamu had a meeting with the Commonwealth Pre-Election team on Wednesday, he said BVAS and IReV will not work properly if there is no stable electricity.

But Morka, in an interview with journalists on Thursday, said the National Chairman of the APC “has tasked INEC to take effective measures to bridge any gaps that may be caused by electricity and telecommunication network challenges in some remote polling constituencies in the country, to ensure the smooth and effective deployment of BVAS and other technologies to ensure free and fair elections.

“To be clear, Chairman Adamu did not reject the sending of BVAS or the electronic transmission of results as erroneously reported by sections of the media.

“The APC administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has midwifed the successful reform of the Electoral Act, the introduction of (BVAS) among other technological innovations, and has guided the conduct of credible, free, fair and transparent elections in Edo, Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States.

“Our party and government remain committed to high standards of transparency in elections and strengthening democracy in our country.”

Also, the National Youth Mobilization North Central Director of the campaign council, Mike Msuaan, said the APC will in no way undermine the use of BVAS and IReV.

He said, “We did not see Asiwaju competing with Atiku and Peter Obi. We know what Atiku is doing in this country. He threw young people from the north and the middle of the country into the street.

“We are equal to the work. We have a talented person, his predecessors spoke for him and would speak for him. This is the person whose economic system in Lagos is being copied in other states. The two are nowhere compared to Tinubu. Under Tinubu, there will be complete freedom for the youth and wealth creation.”

“The President of the United States of America (USA) is as old as Tinubu. It’s not about age, it’s about what you have at the top. Tinubu has the best experience. The right thing for a president to do is to unite the best hands of the country. Tested and trusted. You did it in Lagos and you will do it for Nigeria.

“Why should APC be afraid of BVAS and electronic transmission of results when the youths are behind us so much? Why should we be afraid? I told you that if the election is held tomorrow, we will win.

“They are the ones who run us. We have given them a gap of more than 30 percent before. And tomorrow, if the elections are held, we will give them more than 50 percent. We are very comfortable with the plan made by INEC.

“We will win with that because that is responsible for the fraud of those who want to cheat the results on the day of the election. Asiwaju is the next president of the country by the grace of God.”
