Presidential Election Results: Tinubu Leads Atiku, Obi As INEC Declares 20 States | Citizen NewsNG

 

Following Saturday’s general election, Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, is in the lead.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as of Monday night, had announced collated results in 20 states.

With 5,862,453 votes, Tinubu is ahead of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar, who has received 4,288,434 votes.

With 2,834,932 votes, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) is currently in third place; Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) received 1,315,549.

Interestingly, Tinubu is the only top contender that failed to win home state, losing Lagos to Obi. Atiku won in President Muhammadu Buhari’s state – Katsina.

The results from other states, as well as the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, are expected to be presented today from 11am.

The International Conference Centre, ICC, in Abuja, venue of the national collation centre, remains under tight security.

The opposition on Monday called for the suspension of the announcement of results. PDP’s Dino Melaye and Emeka Ihedioha at some point walked out of the ICC.

The parties complained of irregularities, over-voting, refusal of officials to upload results on the INEC website, among others.

Out of 176,846 polling units in 774 local government areas, submitted results are from 79,673 units.
