JUST IN: INEC Set To Declare Buhari President-Elect With Over 15m Votes

The Independent National Electoral Commission is set to announce President Muhammadu Buhari president-elect, following the collation of results of the 23 February election.

INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu will make the announcement at 3am on Wednesday.
At the end of collation on Tuesday night, President Buhari crossed the 15 million mark in votes scored in 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.
He polled 15,191,847 votes, winning in 19 of the states, after the result of Rivers was added.
His main challenger Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party scored 11, 255,978 votes and won 17 states and Abuja.
Buhari also satisfied the constitutional requirement of making 25 per cent in 34 states and the FCT. He missed the cut in Enugu and Anambra states.
In 2015, Buhari scored 15, 424,921 votes to beat the PDP incumbent Goodluck Jonathan who scored 12,853,162 votes.
It means Abubakar performed worse than Jonathan.
