Actress, Kate Henshaw, laments inability to vote, as BVAS fails to recognize her (Video)



Kate Henshaw, a Nollywood actress, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of preventing her and 20 other voters in her polling unit from casting their votes in the ongoing election.

Taking to microblogging platform Twitter to give an update about how the election was going, the veteran lamented that she had not been able to cast her vote because the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) (an electronic device designed to read Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) and authenticate voters) showed she is not registered.

Henshaw further disclosed that she found her name on the register on the wall and on INEC register however, she can’t vote.

She called on the person in charge of INEC in Lagos to find a quick solution to the problem.

Her words: “You people are playing with my destiny. INEC eh! I registered, I transferred my card, i picked up my PVC now your BVAS is saying I’m not registered. But I have seen my name on the register on the wall and in your website.

“What are you guys doing? Its like you people want problem with me. INEC, CNN, BBC anybody watching this election from outside the country, INEC is playing games.

“its not just me, there are so many people who have not been found on the BVAS. Please whomever is in charge of INEC Lagos, You need to come and sought it out here”.
