Recall that Nigerians have been complaining over the inability of INEC to use the BVAS to transmit the February 25 presidential election as INEC reverted back to the manual process of election collation and announcement.
INEC on their own hands, have come out in a statement, apologizing to Nigerias over their inability to use BVAS saying that it’s as a result of glitches beyond their control and promised to fixed it within a short period of time.
During the election there was alot of complaints about the malfunctioning of the BVAS and the inability of the INEC officials to upload election results to the INEC IREV.
