Revealed: 13.5m Nigerians Voted Without PVC In 2015 Election


A new data released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) shows that at least 13.5 million Nigerians voted manually in the 2015 presidential election.

The data, obtained by DeepDive Intelligence, also shows that President Muhammadu Buhari, the then-candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared the winner in nine of the 10 most-affected states.

According to an analysis conducted by a Nigerian website, TheCable, 68 per cent of votes cast without PVC were in states won by Buhari.

When a voter’s fingerprint is not captured, it either means the voter is not the authentic owner of the PVC presented or that the INEC card reader malfunctioned.

The then-President Goodluck Jonathan and Buhari were the two major contenders for the 2015 presidential election. Jonathan became Nigeria’s first incumbent president to lose a re-election bid.

Of the 31,746,490 accredited voters in the 2015 Presidential election, 13,536,311 representing 42.6 per cent of voters voted without biometric accreditation.

Data revealed that out of this number, 9,179,989 votes were from states won by Buhari and 4,356,322 votes came from states won by Jonathan, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, representing 68 per cent and 32 per cent of accredited voters respectively.
