PRESIDENT JONATHAN CONGRATULATES BUHARI, CONCEDES DEFEAT


President Goodluck Jonathan has called opposition candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, to concede defeat in Saturday’s presidential poll and congratulate the 72-year-old former military ruler and candidate of the All Progressive Congress.


With the national electoral commission on the verge of concluding collation of results from Nigeria’s 36 states and Abuja, the federal capital, General Buhari of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) is ahead of Jonathan by over 2 million votes. It will be impossible for Jonathan to close the gap going by exit poll numbers.

The APC has declared victory in the poll through its spokesman, Mr. Lai Mohammed even though the PDP insists there were irregularities in at least four states in northern Nigeria, where Buhari is from.
