The six area councils of the Federal Capital territory, Abuja, have received electoral materials for Saturday’s Chairmen and Councillors elections. They were sent to offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, which promptly distributed them to all six Area Councils.
This is even as it was noticed that electorates in the six Area Councils have also been fully mobilised for the elections which will see new chairmen and councillors in the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
Among sensitive materials received at the FCT Area Council was a Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).
An Electoral Officer for Gwagwalada Area Council, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed receipt of a sufficient number of BVAS and backup ahead of tomorrow’s Area Council Elections.
The BVAS is a system that will combine fingerprint and face biometrics for the identity verification of voters
