The Independent National Electoral Commission conducted the presidential and senatorial elections on Saturday, February 25 and the results from each states have begun trickling in.


A total of 18 presidential candidates contested the election which was held across the 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.


The Commission, on Sunday, commenced the last stage of the collation and announcement of the results of the presidential election by 6pm at the National Collation Centre in Abuja.


Even though, there have been postponements in some states, the election has been largely concluded across the 36 states and 774 Local Government Areas in the country.


Some states where the election has been concluded have finished collating the results at wards, local government and state levels, and the INEC collation officers across the states are expected to take turns to present their final figures.


The INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, who presides over the proceedings at the National Collation Centre, is the Chief Returning Officer of the presidential election. He will make the announcement of the final results and declare the winner of the election after taking the results of the elections from the polling units across the country.


However, four out of the eighteen candidates are considered major contenders, they are Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressive Congress, Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of New Nigeria Peoples Party.


To be declared the winner, a candidate must score the highest number of votes and at least 25 per cent of votes in 25 states (two-thirds of Nigeria’s 36 states and the federal capital, Abuja).


At about 6pm on Sunday, the INEC chairman announced the first result from Ekiti State.
