Nigeria : Main opposition party has rejected the election results being announced by the Nigerian electoral commission, branding them “incorrect and unacceptable”.
The chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, made the comments at a press conference in the capital city, Abuja.
Results for the presidential vote in the capital and four states have so far been declared by the electoral commission. Four of the five have gone to President Muhammadu Buhari.
As it stands, he has 1,317,976 votes to his main rival Atiku Abubakar’s 1,173,437.
Around 73 million voters were eligible to vote in Saturday’s general election.
