The winner of the 2023 presidential election held on February 25, Bola Tinubu, and his vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima, has received the Certificates of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The Punch reported that the presentation of the CoR was done by the chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, Wednesday afternoon at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, venue of the presidential election results collation.

Recall that the former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, was declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Tinubu, who ran on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), won with a total of 8,794,726 votes, defeating other candidates including Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party.

Tinubu is credited with leading the coalition that ousted the PDP from power in 2015 and has extended his influence beyond the South-West region in recent years. This is the first time Tinubu has contested for the nation’s top job.

Accepting the CoR, the President-Elect reiterated his commitment to the youths and promised to work to make Nigeria better.
