Former African Presidents Release Preliminary Statements on Nigeria’s Electoral Process


Former Presidents Thabo Mbeki and Uhuru Kenyatta, the head of the Commonwealth election observers’ mission and the head of the AU Election Observers Mission (AUEOM), respectively, joined Sierra Leone’s former President Bai Koroma in a press conference on Monday to release preliminary statements reflecting their missions’ findings and recommendations to relevant stakeholders in the electoral process in Nigeria.

As per BBC’s provisional results, the Labour Party candidate Peter Obi is leading in Lagos, defeating Bola Tinubu of the ruling APC party, who accepted his defeat and urged his supporters to maintain peace.

While Tinubu won five states, the candidate for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar has won in Osun, his home state of Adamawa, and Katsina, where outgoing President Muhammadu Buhari comes from, as well as in the south-eastern Akwa-Ibom state.

The head of the Independent National Electoral Commission confirmed the results from Ekiti, Kwara, Ogun, Ondo, Osun, and Oyo, but 26 states and the capital, Abuja, are yet to be declared.
