It’s almost a no-brainer that Nigeria will be making history in a few hours when the final announcement is made as INEC is currently on recess and will be reconvening at 8 p.m. Nigerian time to announce the result for the last state “Borno,” which more than likely will be won by the APC’s presidential candidate. With declared results for 35 of Nigeria’s 36 states, Buhari had polled 14,951,378 votes while president Goodluck Jonathan had 12,827, 522 – a lead of more than 2 Million votes.
We all can’t wait for this special moment when Nigeria’s next leader will be announced…so, stay tuned!
