ISUOFIA, Aguata, Anambra, Nigeria – Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance(APGA), Professor Chukwuma Soludo and his father, Chief Simeon Soludo and many others could not cast their votes at their ward earlier today following the failure of the Bimodal Verification Accreditation System, BVAS, deployed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to boost credibility of the election.
Professor Soludo, who arrived his polling unit, 002 Ofiyi Square, Umueze Village, Isuofia in Aguata LGA amid excitement by voters was disappointed that the BVAS failed. He called on INEC to provide an immediate solution to allow his people exercise their franchise.
