The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has received the last consignment of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation (BVAS) machines, as part of preparations for a seamless 2023 General Election.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, in the company of National Commissioners and senior officials of the Commission received the machines at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Tuesday.
