Abstract In so many institutions, especially the ones controlled by the government, there are so many
ghost workers who receive salaries on monthly basis even when they don’t come to work. This
work explores solutions of ghost workers’ conundrum as suggested by researchers of your, and
gives a two way authentication and verification panacea using Fingerprint and Iris. It takes in
the data of all workers daily in an attendance format, and makes sure a staff is up to date before
the activation of his or her salary at month end. And because no fingerprint is the same, one
can never be impersonated using this system. Data was gathererd secondarily. The fingerprint
detection Application program interface was designed using VisualBasic.net. The digital
persona was used to read the fingerprints into the system and MySQL was used at the back end
of the system. At the end, the system was able to reduce the influx of ghost workers in any
institution that uses the proposed system to checkmate their workers on daily basis.
