Partial results from Nigeria’s presidential election show Tinubu leading

Provisional results from Nigeria’s disputed presidential election over the weekend showed Bola Tinubu from the ruling party in the lead, a Reuters tally of votes in 25 of the country’s 36 states showed on Tuesday.
Electoral commission results from the states showed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress party (APC) was ahead with about 36 per cent or 7 million of valid votes counted, with Atiku Abubakar of the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) trailing close behind with 30 per cent or nearly 6 million valid votes.
Peter Obi of the smaller Labour Party got 20 per cent or about 3.8 million votes. More results were expected to show the winner later on Tuesday.
The preliminary results were announced in the states by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officers and will still have to be presented at the commission’s national collation centre in the federal capital Abuja.
But opposition parties have rejected the results as the product of a flawed process, which suffered multiple technical difficulties owing to the introduction of new technology by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
