The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians of real-time electronic transmission of results during the 2023 general election.
INEC further assured eligible voters that the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) would be secured against any form of interference during the entire process.
Lawrence Bayode, INEC deputy director of ICT, disclosed this in an interview with ChannelsTV’s flagship morning show, Sunrise Daily, on Wednesday, November 9.
“I want to say again that we have done everything to ensure that BVAS is not compromised. The data on BVAS will be secured,” Bayode said.
“After the poll, when the data is transmitted to our backend server, the data in transit will be secured. By the time the data gets to our backend server, the data will also be secured there.
“We have looked at the machine, and we looked at a lot of things. As I said earlier, you cannot build such a system and would not fortify the system to solidify it.
“Whether we like it or not, people will try a lot to beat this system. But the more they try, the more they meet a brick wall.
“I can say categorically that we have taken care of every surface attack vulnerability on this system, and we have also tried our best to ensure that the system cannot be hacked into on election day, and I can say again that BVAS cannot be compromised,” he added.
