In his response to the Supreme Court’s affirmation of the victory of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2023 General Elections, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed his belief that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) is here to stay as a legal instrument for the accreditation and transmission of election results in Nigeria.

Atiku’s Media Office in Abuja issued a statement on Tuesday, which also congratulated the people of Osun State for the affirmation of their collective mandate given to Governor Adeleke.

Atiku emphasized that the introduction of technology in the conduct of elections in Nigeria is a progress that cannot be reversed.

“We are all witnesses to the copoius references to the BVAS technology in coming up with this judgement.

“The law governing our elections has truly brought power to the people, and those power mongering politicians who believe that they can freely subvert the inherent power of democracy now have their hopes dashed,” he said.

Atiku called on Nigerians to take keen interest in the growth and development of democracy in the country, adding, “we must not put the laws in our hands but remain vigilant because, as the saying goes, ‘eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”
