The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has explained that the reason all submissions made by parties and their agents were rejected was that the glitches experienced on the BVAS did not affect the results.
The commission was sure that the results which were uploaded offline would later appear on the INEC Result Viewing Portal (IReV) once there is an internet connection on the machines.
INEC also explained that there was a Plan B during the collation of the presidential election results as none of the results was lost or tampered with.
The fact sheet by INEC showed that the glitches experienced during the transmission of the presidential election results did not affect the process of collation.
The fact sheet said: “The glitches had no effect on the collation process or the results. BVAS can store information offline. The working of BVAS was the reason why you have the competitive results by the presidential candidates.
“INEC results substantially tallied with the figures arrived at by some international non-governmental organisations.”
