It has been revealed that almost 9 million people cast their votes in 2015 without a full biometric verification.
According to data made available by ''INEC's Smart Card Reader Accreditation Backend Transmission System: 2015 Presidential and National Assembly Elections'', it was disclosed that there are individuals, in their millions who cast votes without going through the due process.
The data available sees Kano State, with 1.35million voters, and Katsina with 1.05million voters as the states with the highest incidence of such practise.
Eight other Northern states namely; Sokoto with 588730, Kebbi with 496565, Zamfara with 578,730, Jigawa with 744,457 and Kaduna with 800,112 voters without verification join Kano and Katsina as the states with the highest incidences. Others are Niger, Plateau, and Bauchi, and the Federal Capital Territory.
There was a low incidence down South with Imo, Anambra, Rivers, Abia, Bayelsa, Cross Rivers, Enugu, and South Western state, Ekiti all saw people voting without biometric verification.
Also, North Central State, Kogi was also one of the areas with low incidences of the practise.
A total of 8,672,661 voters cast votes in 2015 without biometric verification, which is indicative of the possibility that the voters are not humans, are not authentic owners of the Permanent Voter Cards, or there is a Calibration error with INEC's Card Reader.
