Success stories have trailed the mock accreditation exercise conducted across Anambra state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the February 25 and March 11 general elections.

According to Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), the mock accreditation exercise with BVAS machines took place in Anambra East, Onitsha South, Awka South, Idemili North, Nnewi North and Orumba North Local Government Areas.

At Igboezunu Aguleri, Okene ward one, the mock accreditation started at around past nine 0'clock in the morning where fourteen persons were accredited at about eleven 0'clock in the morning.

The situation was the same at Fegge two, Silas  Works two,  Odoakpu one, Pioneer Primary School in Onitsha and Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu  University ward one, Igbariam respectively .

ABS observed that accreditation with the BVAS machine took few minutes to capture and identify each voter without hitches while those who were accredited expressed happiness with the exercise.

Speaking after the inspection, the Anambra REC, Dr Agwu said the mock accreditation has proven that INEC is ready to conduct free, fair and credible election come February 25 and March 11 with the amount of upgrading they embarked upon.

Dr Agwu expressed pride that for once INEC will give Nigerians no reason to complain after election since the BVAS will capture the name, face, time, thumbprint of every voter, noting that there will be no rigging as no one can be able to vote twice haven been captured once by the BVAS
