Since the close of polls, Nigerians have been waiting with bated breath as results continue to trickle in with the major candidates winning in their strongholds.
Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) candidate is, however, pulled an upset in Lagos, where he beat the ruling All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Atiku Abubakar on the other hand, has won in Gombe and in his home state of Adamawa (both in the northeast). He has also been projected to win in Buhari’s home state of Katsina.
Tinubu has won Ekiti, Ogun and Ondo, all located in the south-west, his traditional strongholds. He is also projected to win Jigawa and most likely Borno, home state of his running mate Kashim Shettima.
