In Nigeria’s recently concluded general elections, counting is still going on.
In particular, among young people, who make up approximately one-third of the 87 million eligible voters, turnout seems to be strong.
The two-party system that has ruled Nigeria for the past 24 years has faced an unprecedented threat in the election.
The candidates include Atiku Abubakar of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the hitherto unknown Labour Party, Mr. Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and 15 others.
So far official results from the south-western Ekiti state show a clear victory for ruling party candidate Bola Tinubu in one of his strongholds.
In the upcoming updates, we will bring you the latest headlines from major press hubs covering the polls.
For now, Nigerian musician-turned-politician, Banky W did not get the results he hoped for. Details in the next set of updates.
