“It was the freest and most authentic Nigeria had ever had, and that is despite the effort of the opposition to delegitimise the election. And I put forward my position there that the two reasons the election was the best were one.
“The introduction of technology especially, the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) made it pretty difficult for anybody to do the usual things before like over-voting, stuffing of ballot boxes and the likes because once it takes your biometrics, you cannot vote twice.”
