INEC official admits ‘seemingly over-voting’ in Osun poll

Under cross-examination by the petitioners’ lead attorney, Mr. Akin Olujinmi (SAN), Oladunjoye, a witness for INEC, the first respondent in the case, was shown her witness statement, which showed that the number of accredited voters in a polling unit in Ede South contradicted the number of accredited voters on the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System report presented by INEC.

The witness stated in her statement that there were 388 registered voters in Ward 4 Unit 7, Ede South, but according to the RBVR, an INEC-supplied BVAS report, there were only 313, indicating that there was 75 votes that appeared to have been cast in excess.

The witness was further pointed by the attorney to paragraph 21.36 of her witness statement, where the accreditation amount was listed as 830 but was actually 793 according to the BVAS report.

Oladunjoye clarified during a second round of questioning by INEC’s counsel, Prof. Paul Ananaba (SAN), that she used the term “seemingly over-voting” because over-voting could not be determined until a comparison was made between the numbers on Form EC8A and the actual data on the BVAS machine used for the election.NYSC portal

She further stated that in accordance with INEC regulations, Form EC8A and the actual BVAS machine are used to record voter accreditation information.

Ananaba concluded its case following the panel’s dismissal of the witness.
