Atiku defeats Buhari in Imo


Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party has secured a landslide victory in Imo State.

Mr Abubakar polled 334, 923 votes to defeat President Muhammadu who ran under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Saturday’s presidential election in Imo State.

The election took place in all the 27 local government areas in the state and Mr Abubakar won in 25 of the LGAs.

Mr Buhari, who polled 140, 463 votes, won only two LGAs: Oru East and Ideato South of his party’s governorship candidate in the state, Hope Uzodinma, and Governor Rochas Okorocha respectively.

With this result, Mr Buhari secured more votes than the 133,253 votes he garnered from the state in 2015.

The result for Nkwerre LGA that was earlier declared for Mr Buhari was changed when it was discovered that 1,000 votes were added to the score.

Instead of 5161, the officer wrote 6161 while the result of PDP remains at 5819, putting PDP ahead of APC.

The INEC Returning Officer, Benjamin Ozumba, who is the Vice Chancellor of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, announced the remaining three LGAs on Tuesday morning at the commissions’ office in Owerri, the state capital.

Mr Buhari is leading with about 500, 000 votes in the seven states announced thus far by INEC. They are kwara; FCT; Ekiti; Nassarawa; Osun; Kogi; and Gombe.

The PDP have also rejected the yet to be concluded results of the presidential election, saying they are false.
