ABUJA, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Nigerians are earnestly waiting for who becomes the nation’s leader for the next four years after going to the poll on Saturday, 25 February, 2023.
Before the commencement of the voting exercise, the top two contenders were believed to be Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Not many saw the emergence of Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP), who copped an unprecedented support of the youths, as a threat to either of both big wigs winning.
But the results from the States announced across the federation so far have shown that the former Anambra State Governor is not a push over of any sort.
Such is the effect of his force that he defeated Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor, in Lagos, and even in his own constituent.
Regardless of these results, however, the candidate who will be returned as Nigeria’s next President is the one with most votes and 25% of total votes from a minimum of 24 States and the Federal Capital Territory.
Therefore, we take a look at the States where each of the top contenders has amassed the required 25% while still hoping to come out tops with the maximum number of votes:
