From Table above, it is clear that the error which occurred in the addition of the total, votes for each candidate was an excel column shift formula error.

  1. If you add all the total votes of all candidate without Basse, you will find out that everything is correct, Adama Barrow 199,606, Jammeh 183,997 and Kandeh 78,479.
  2. In Basse, the total votes was 63,909, whereas Adama barrow got 28,102, Jammeh 24,490 and Kandeh is 11,289
  3. The excel column shift formula error occurred by adding Adama Barrow’s 199,606 plus the total for Basse 63,909 giving him a total of 263,515 and adding Jammeh’s 183,997 with Adama Barrow,s Basse total of 28,102 giving him a total of 212,099 and similarly added Kandeh’s 78,479 to Jammeh’s Basse total of 24,490 giving him a total of 102,969
  4. It is very clear from the above table and tabulation that there was no fraud, it was simply an excel column shift formula error.
