Nigeria election: Muhammadu Buhari re-elected as president


0

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been re-elected for a second four-year term, results from Saturday’s general election show.

The 76-year-old defeated his main rival, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, with a margin of just under four million votes.

Mr Abubakar’s People’s Democratic Party has rejected the result.

Delays and violence marred the run-up to the poll but no independent observer has cited electoral fraud.

Final results released by the Nigerian electoral commission (Inec) show Mr Buhari was re-elected with a margin of just under four million votes.

The commission will make a formal declaration on Wednesday.

Turnout was just below 35% of registered voters.
