'Before BVAS, Some People Would Sit In A Room And Write Election Results'- Gombe Governor

By Adedayo Said 

Inuwa Yahaya, governor of Gombe state, says the bimodal voter authentication system (BVAS) has eliminated any possibility of electoral fraud ahead of the 2023 elections.

Yahaya said prior to the introduction of the BVAS device, the card readers used in previous elections were manipulated by some politicians.

Speaking on Tuesday in Akko LGA of Gombe state, the governor praised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for introducing the device.

Yahaya said he is confident that the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates at all levels would win elections in the state in 2023.

“Before now, some people will sit in a room and write results, declaring whoever the winner of election, but with BVAS, we are not scared because we have supporters,” he said.

Yahaya appealed to potential voters in the area to ensure that they collect their permanent voter cards (PVCs).


The governor said Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, won’t disappoint Nigerians if elected as president.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari has delivered good governance to Nigerians, adding that Tinubu will continue from where he stops.

“We need consolidation, that’s why we are going to vote for Tinubu. Tinubu has promised to continue with the good works of Buhari by ensuring good governance to the good people,” he said.

“I assure you he will not disappoint.”

Yahaya said his visit was to thank the community for the support of his administration as well as to seek prayers before proceeding to campaign.
