Buhari Won 2015 Elections Due To Manual Voting – INEC

Reports made available on the website of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) have revealed the extent to which President Muhammadu Buhari benefitted from manual voting during the 2015 elections.

It was garnered that the All Progressives Congress (APC) got most of the votes cast without bio-metric verification during the election.

According to the report, 13,536,311 votes were cast manually during the 2015 presidential poll, representing 42.6 per cent of the 31,746,490 accredited voters.

Of that number, the INEC report showed 10,184,720 votes representing 75 per cent of the total votes cast were from states won by Muhammadu Buhari, the then-presidential candidate of the APC, while 3,351,591 votes representing 25 per cent came from states won by Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

It was revealed that the 10 states most affected by manual voting include Kebbi, Zamfara, Niger, Bauchi, Plateau, Kaduna, Jigawa, Katsina, Sokoto and Kano: the APC won in nine of the states.

However, some Nigerians have expressed shock over the report with a majority doubting the authenticity of the findings considering the upcoming 2019 general elections and the furore over the use of card readers.
