Uncertainty over Nigerian elections’ results

Abuja, Feb 28 (Prensa Latina) Although Tuesday is the day set to announce the results of the Nigerian general elections held on Saturday, February 25, uncertainty persists about the winner in the presidential poll.

Partial figures give Bola Tinubu, a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (CTP, in the government), a lead over former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, an aspirant of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), and Peter Obi, a contender of the Labor Party (PL), in a distant third place.

On Monday, the PDP and PL delegates left the Vote Collection Center in protest over alleged indications of voting fraud, such as differences in the voters’ register, the number of ballots cast, and the reports transmitted by polling stations via the Internet.

Tinubu’s lead dissolved early the possibility of an unprecedented runoff in the presidential segment of the elections announced at the beginning of the vote to which 90 million voters of 220 million inhabitants of this country, the most populated in Africa, were called.

Protests and accusations persist while the population awaits the results of the general elections, which should be announced on Tuesday afternoon.
