Adamu identified the challenges of network failure and electricity problems as major hindrances that could mar the use of the technology for the 2023 elections. In 2021, INEC introduced BVAS into the country’s electoral exercise, allowing for the accreditation of voters through biometrics capturing, and uploading of polling results among other functions.

Different stakeholders have described BVAS as an upgrade of the smartcard reader, which was used in the 2019 elections as well as a game changer in the country’s electoral process.
