Details of the voters’ register released Tuesday by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) showed that Lagos State has the highest number of registered voters with 5,822,207 found eligible out of the 68,833,476 registered voters.

Lagos State is followed by Kano State with a total number of 4,975,701 registered voters.

According to details on the INEC website, Kaduna State has a total number of 3,407,222 registered voters; followed by Rivers State which has 2,537,590 registered voters.

Below is the breakdown of the states of Nigeria into geopolitical zones with total number of registered voters with percentage against total voters registered and you can begin your permutation for the presidential elections.

Below are a few interesting Scenarios;

- How would President Jonathan perform in the South-South?

- Would Buhari clean out in North West?

- Would the votes be split down the middle in South East?

- How about the votes in the second largest geopolitical zone, the South-West? Is it a foregone conclusion that Buhari will pip President Jonathan or would it be an overwhelming victory?
