INEC declares Muhammadu Buhari as winner of 2019 Presidential election


Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, has declared Muhammadu Buhari of APC as winner of the 2019 presidential election that held on February 23rd, 2019.
President Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) polled a total of 15,191,847 (56%) votes, winning in 19 of the states while Abubakar received 11,262,978 (41%) of votes and won 17 states and Abuja. 
Buhari also satisfied the constitutional requirement of making 25 per cent in 34 states and the FCT.  In 2015, Buhari scored 15, 424,921 votes to beat the PDP incumbent Goodluck Jonathan who scored 12,853,162 votes.
Atiku Abubakar's People's Democratic Party has however rejected the results and called for fresh elections in some parts of the country where they allege over-voting and other irregularities.
"We demand the immediate and outright cancellation of presidential election results in Yobe, Zamfara, Nasarawa and Borno states as submitted by INEC presiding officers and ask for the conduct of fresh elections in these states," PDP said.
