Imo: There Is Plot To Make BVAS Malfunction, Rig Election – Achonu Raises Alarm
The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Imo State, Senator Athan Achonu, has claimed that there is a plot to make the BVAS machines malfunction in some polling units and rig the election.
Achonu made the allegations through the Director of Media and Publicity of his Campaign Organisation, Chibuikem Diala, while addressing journalists on Friday in Owerri, the state capital.
He asserted that the purpose was either to produce a falsified result or to disrupt the voting process in some crucial areas where the riggers lacked a strong presence.

Achonu called on the Resident Electoral Commissioners (REC) to halt the alleged changing of BVAS passwords by the Registration Area Technical Support in order not to compromise the election process.
