Meanwhile the main opposition party, PDP, has rejected the yet to be concluded result of the presidential election.

The results are currently being announced in Abuja with less than a third of Nigeria’s 36 states already announced.

The PDP, in a statement by its national chairman, Uche Secondus, however, said the results being announced do not tally with what the party has collated across the country.

“Firstly, I want to categorically state that our collation centers have all original results from every polling unit, in every ward, in every Local Government Area (LGA) in Nigeria, of which the international community is well aware, implying all results currently being announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is incorrect thus unacceptable to our party and people,” Mr Secondus said.
