Day 3: Collation of Results To Resume Tuesday 11am (News Central TV)

In the International Conference Centre in Abuja, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has finished collation the results for the 2023 presidential election.

Collation on Monday came to an end just after 10p.m.; Tuesday’s collation is expected to start at 11a.m.

Mahmood Yakubu, the national chairman of INEC, postponed the collation to allow the state collation officers for the remaining states’ presidential elections (SCOPs).

Results have already been made public in approximately 13 states, with the winning parties splitting the victories.

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) received 136,909 votes, trailing Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who received 263,572 votes in Kwara.

Although Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) received 3,141 votes, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) received 31,166 votes.

The APC received 343,945, LP 23,283, NNPP 713, and PDP 354,366 votes in Osun. In Ondo, the APC received 369,924 votes, the LP 44,405, the NNPP 930, and the PDP 115,463.

Results for the states of Gombe and Yobe were also made public. Both states went to Atiku. Similar to how Tinubu won Ogun, Obi won Enugu.

Mahmood added that there will be four stages in the collation of the presidential election results: the 8,889 wards, the 774 local government areas, the SCOPs in the 36 states, and the Federal Capital Territory, which will submit the votes for each contender in Abuja.

The collation centre will be operational day and night with brief pauses, according to the electoral chief. He also advised political parties to always use INEC data when calculating their results.

“I appeal to all political parties and media organisations to draw their figures only from the official results released by the commission as the only body constitutionally responsible for releasing official election figures,” Yakubu emphasised.

Nigerians anticipate the announcement of the results by the electoral umpire after elections for the presidency, 360 House of Representatives members, and 109 Senate seats were held on Saturday in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

Notwithstanding the fact that there are 18 candidates running, pollsters and commentators have labeled the race a four-horse fight amongst Kwankwaso, Atiku, Tinubu, and Obi.

Both Kwankwaso and Atiku are natives of northern Nigeria, Obi and Tinubu are from the country’s southern region. The two terms of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is up for reelection on May 29, 2023, are set to expire, and the four heavyweights and leading contenders each enjoy significant support.
