Tinubu Emerges Winner of Presidential Election

Promise Eze

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the president-elect.

Tinubu polled 8.8 million votes to defeat former-associate-turned-foe Atiku Abubakar and surprise frontrunner Peter Obi, who scored 6.9 million and 6.1 million, respectively, to emerge president hours after three opposition parties called for a cancellation of what they called a “sham” of an election.

Declaring the result Mahmoud Yakubu, the INEC chairman, said: “Bola Tinubu of APC, having satisfied the requirements of the law, is hereby declared the winner of the election.”
