Former Benue State governor, Sen. Gabriel Suswam has said that with the introduction of Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BIVAS) by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) the era of ballot box snatching is over.
Suswam, who is running for reelection, said this on Monday in Adikpo, headquarters of Kwande Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue, at the flag-off of the Benue North-East senatorial campaign.
He is currently the lawmaker representing that zone in the Nigerian Senate.
The former governor noted that snatching of ballot boxes would be an exercise in futility going forward
Rather he advised the people to concentrate on canvassing support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Suswam said, “The era of snatching ballot box and other electoral materials is over. If you snatch a ballot box you are wasting your time.
“All you need to do is to man your polling units with your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to ensure victory for our party.”
