The Presidential Election Petition Court sitting at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, today, granted the request of the Independent National Electoral Commission to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System it used for the presidential election.
The court, in a unanimous decision by a three-member panel of justices, held that preventing the electoral umpire from reconfiguring the BVAS would adversely affect the forthcoming governorship and State Assembly elections.
It dismissed objections that the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to the request.
