How Rain, Poor BVAS Network Marred Voting In Rivers

The Bimodal Voter Accreditation System machine’s poor network marred voting process in some parts of Rivers State.

A heavy rainfall which also began in the afternoon around Polling Unit 7, Ward 9, Rumuepirikom, Port Harcourt, in the state, sent some voters home.

While some voted successfully, some voters were seen returning home as they said they were going home because of the poor network of the BVAS machine.

A woman, who was seen returning home, said, “They said the network is bad,” when asked why she was leaving.

Switch Nigeria earlier reported that the governor of the state, Nyesom Wike, could not vote when he came in the morning.

Switch Nigeria also reported that the voters lamented earlier in the day after waiting since 8am at the polling unit but couldn’t get accredited.

Accreditation began late at the polling unit as election materials and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission were not also seen around 10am.
