“I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to the Federal Government, especially the Chairman of INEC, to ensure that the right thing is done in Abia State. INEC has made it clear that BVAS will be used for voting in this election.

“I expect that any result that is not from BVAS accreditation will not be accepted. So I hope the INEC chairman will prevail in this situation and make sure the right thing is done.”
