Group under the auspices of the Unified Nigerian Youth Forum (UNYF), has debunked what its described as rumour, that the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Yakubu Mahmood is currently under pressure to stop the use the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) in the coming election.

The group who also frowned at the calls for the removal and investigation of the INEC boss, said, such calls were coming from unpatriotic Nigerians.

Addressing the press conference in Kaduna, the National President of the group, Comrade Abdulsalam Moh'd Kazeem, noted that those behind the calls for the sack of the INEC Chairman are wrongly accusing him.

"Those behind this charade are nothing but, paid agents and goons of selfish and unpatriotic politicians seeking to manipulate elections at all cost.

"The activities of certain group of persons purporting to be promoting the interest of the north and Nigeria, but sadly working for the enemies of the nation.

"We dispelled in strong terms the rumours making the rounds that the INEC Boss and his management team have morally compromised because of pressure from political parties to deactivate BVAS.

"For the record, please note that; BVAS and all the electoral reforms currently in place have been approved by President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC majority National Assembly," he emphasized.

Kazeem also stressed that since the appointment of the apex electoral body's Chairman, Prof. Mahmood has been working to ensuring that 2023 elections are credible, fair and transparent.

The leader of the group therefore urged Nigerians to mobilize and support the commission towards the conducts of 2023 General elections, adding that the elections will be the best in the nation's history.
