#Nigeria Tests the Introduction of the Electronic #Voter Verification Machine called Card Reader: Solutions to Challenges Faced
 
The 2015 #election in Nigeria is witnessing a the fully implementation of the newly introduced electronic #verification system popularly called #cardreader for the purpose of biometric verification. 
 
The introduction of the card reader to the national elections has generated a lot of debates since its initiation, pre-election (mock) testing in both the national assembly and in some selected states. Several issues has been raised by people of various interest groups.
 
It is worthy to note that some citizens of Nigeria don’t believe that information and communication technologies proffer solutions to some of the challenges of the 21st century. Instead, they focus on any negative news or unpleasant information's about technology products introduced to them.
 
The card reader being an innovative means of verification with the elimination of multiple registration, hence reducing the possibility of multiple voting. It can be said that the challenges faced in the use of the card reader technology use for Nigeria's presidential election shows that the need for proper training and re-training of both the permanent and ad-hoc staffs, proper familiarisation with the card reader technology, and the need for professionals in the use of the #technology be deployed to all polling units for supervision and support.
 
I can attribute the failure and challenges faced in the use of the card reader to the items listed in the previous paragraph and will like to proffer the following as solution for the subsequent elections in a bid to reduce the failure rate. These personnel's will be in better position to handle challenges faced. 
 
The use of professional users of the biometric verification system, these are users who virtually use this devices on daily bases or have a long period of exposure (such as more than three months) to the use of the biometrics system. Such as the employees of the National #Identity Management Commission (#NIMC), ad-hoc staffs of #Lagos State Residence Registration Agencies (#LASRRA), clerical personals who use such machine in the airport and #immigration offices and many more.
 
From my experience with the biometrics scanners, I will like to note that the #biometric scanners might have challenges with capturing and verifying certain professional like, truck drivers, farmers, carpenters, factory workers, welders and labourers. This is because these workers usually have a large amount of dead skin and smudged finger surface of their hands. They are advised to take precautionary measures like using quality hand gloves at work, washing their hands regularly, pedicure, and proper cleansing of the hand, rubbing the hands together to get warmth and more.
 
Also, I advise Nigerians to stay calm, embrace peace, protect their votes, and accept that technologies (#broadband, #internet, #mobile apps, #web resources, biometrics scanners and the cards reader) are here to make a difference. The world is watching.
