    Abstract:
    ABSTRACT The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) unquestionably owes the country an explanation. They had four years to better their work and set up a free and fair election in 2023, but nothing changed aside from the problematic Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) being implemented. The INEC's live results collation and presentation is a disgraceful mess. Quite shockingly, university professors who served as INEC ad hoc staff instead of performing the straightforward job of reading out complete numbers and correctly adding them up, recited multiple single digits as totals. Additionally, many returning officers detailed irregularities in their regions, and party agents protested the widespread disenfranchisement of voters brought on by malfunctioning BVAS machines at voting places or the absence of INEC employees. In the research, the conduct of electoral credibility was considered. Result showed the country's democracy in is jeopardy with advent of depression and economic decline. This in turn needs urgent attention. keywords: Bimodal, accreditation, electoral, ballot papers, democracy, vandalism, fraud.
