In Nigeria’s recently concluded general elections, counting is still going on.
In particular, among young people, who make up about one-third of the 87 million eligible electors, turnout seems to be strong.
The two-party system that has ruled Nigeria for the past 24 years has faced an unusual threat in the election.
The candidates are Atiku Abubakar of the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the previously unknown Labour Party, Mr. Tinubu of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC), and 15 others.
Bola Tinubu of the governing party has won handily so far, according to official returns from the south-western Ekiti state, which is one of his strongholds.
We’ll bring you the most recent news from significant media centers reporting the polls in the forthcoming updates.
As the results of the elections on February 25 began to come in yesterday, the presidential candidates of the governing APC, the major opposition PDP, and the Labour Party were in a close fight.
