The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, has said things relatively went well in today’s presidential and national assembly elections.
The INEC boss made the remark while addressing the media and foreign observers at the collation Center in Abuja on Saturday evening.
Yakubu submitted that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machine performed optimally nationwide during the presidential election.
He stressed that reports made available to the commission across boards affirmed all went relatively well with its technologies.
“There were ballot boxes snatched here and there, but it appears that the target of those who want to undermine the election is the BVAS. We would continue to do everything to protect the process and proceed courageously,” he stated.
However, it was learned that some electorates and a Labour Party agent clashed in the Kuje area of Abuja as INEC officials experienced glitches in uploading results on the machine.
The disagreement happened at Polling Unit (PU 038) at Prison Headquarters Road, Kuje.
