Osun BVAS Report: HEDA Tackles INEC



The Human and Environmental Development Agenda has slammed the Independent National Electoral Commission over claims that it issued different copies of Certified True Copies reports of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System for the Osun gubernatorial election.

Earlier, some quarters raised alarm over the seeming difference in the copies given to the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party.

The organisation’s management disclosed this in a statement issued over the weekend.

“INEC is alleged to, having discovered the palpable inconsistencies between figures recorded as accredited votes on the EC8A (result sheet) and the BVAS Report, tampered with the contents of the original BVAS report to protect the mandate awarded to Ademola Adeleke and PDP, at the expense of credible election, by issuing a fresh CTC to the defendants, claiming the CTC earlier issued to APC and Oyetola was incomplete and unsynchronised.

“Considering the Ekiti and Osun elections were conducted and declared on the basis of BVAS, How possible and plausible is it for INEC to have declared a winner from an in synchronized BVAS? Considering the BVAS report issued was more than 10 days after the Osun election.

“As an Organisation committed to fight against corruption; financial and electoral, HEDA is concerned about this development. The Organisation observed the Osun election and engaged the process in collaboration with anti corruption agencies to campaign against vote buying”, it said.

HEDA further asked the anti-corruption agencies to monitor electoral commission officials ahead of the 2023 elections to avoid compromise.
