BREAKING: INEC Declares Tinubu Winner Of 2023 Presidential Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, as the president-elect of the February 25th Presidential Election.

Tinubu, a former Lagos State governor, was declared the president-elect after the 70-year-old polled 8,805,420 votes to win the 2023 presidential election.

The INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, announced Tinubu as the winner at the International Collation Centre in Abuja during the early hours of Wednesday.

Tinubu won the election ahead of other contenders — the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar; the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi; and the New Nigeria Peoples Party candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

The three leading presidential candidates won in 12 states each while Kwankwaso claimed only Kano State.

Tinubu edged Atiku, a former vice president and his closest challenger, with no fewer than 1.8 million votes.

The 2023 presidential election is the first time that Tinubu contested for the nation’s top job. The former senator left office as a two-term governor of Lagos State in 2007 and is credited with leading the coalition that ousted the PDP from power in 2015 and has extended his influence beyond the South-West region in recent years.

Aside from Tinubu; Obi; Atiku, and Kwankwaso, other candidates that gunned for the nation’s oval office include Dumebi Kachikwu of the African Democratic Congress; Kola Abiola, People’s Redemption Party; Omoyele Sowore, Africa Action Congress; Adewole Adebayo, Social Democratic Party; Malik Ado-Ibrahim, Young Progressive Party; Prof Christopher Imumulen, Accord Party; Prof Peter Umeadi, All Progressives Grand Alliance; and Yusuf Mamman Dan Talle, Allied Peoples Movement.

The list also includes Hamza Al-Mustapha, Action Alliance; Sani Yusuf, Action Democratic Party; Nnnadi Osita, Action Peoples Party; Oluwafemi Adenuga, Boot Party; Osakwe Felix Johnson, National Rescue Movement; and Nwanyanwu Daniel Daberechukwu, Zenith Labour Party.

In the result released in the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory, in Borno State, Tinubu polled 252,282 votes across the 27 local government areas and was declared the winner by the state Collation Officer, Prof. Jude Rabo.

Atiku and Obi could only garner 190,921 votes and 7,205, respectively while Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party amassed 4,626 votes.

In Rivers State, Tinubu raked in 231,591 votes from 23 LGAs while the LP scored 175, 071 votes and the PDP polled 88, 468 votes.

The Federal Capital Territory, however, proved to be a game changer for the Labour Party, which floored both Tinubu and his PDP counterpart.

Obi’s popularity in Abuja fetched him 281,717 votes while the former Lagos governor and the former VP shared the remaining slots of 90,902 votes and 74,149 respectively. Kwankwaso also polled 4,517 votes.

But Tinubu made up for his losses in some northern and middle belt states which included Zamfara, Kwara, Kogi, Benue and Kogi States.

In Benue, the APC amassed 310,468 votes to relegate LP (308,372), PDP (130,081) and NNPP (4,740) to second, third and fourth places.

In Zamfara State, he polled 298,396 votes against LP’s 1,660; NNPP’s 4,044 and the PDP’s 193,978 votes.

As expected, Obi soared above other candidates in Plateau where he won by 466,272 votes compared to APC’s 307,195; PDP’s 243,808 while NNPP settled for 8,869 votes.

The states won by Tinubu so far include Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Kwara, Ekiti, Kogi, Benue, Zamfara and Jigawa, while Atiku emerged victorious in Bauchi, Yobe, Gombe, Kaduna, Kebbi, Bayelsa, Adamawa and Akwa Ibom.

On the other hand, Obi has won Lagos, Enugu, Cross River, Nasarawa, Imo, Anambra, Abia, Delta and Plateau states as well as the FCT.

APC SUPPORT GROUPS RALLY ROUND PAUL CHUKWUMA

The members of the APC Support Groups family have thrown their weight behind a Frontline pillar of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State, Sir Paul Chukwuma in the build up to the race for the Anambra State governorship election.
The Convener of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups Think Tank and leader of the Progressive Support Groups Forum, Dr. AK Peters made this declaration in Abuja on the heels of the fake news of the purported arrest and detaintion of Sir Paul Chukwuma by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission ICPC.
In a release signed by Dr. AK Peters and Ustaz Bashir Yahaya, the Secretary of the Think Tank on Friday, the APC Support Groups Leaders condemned the fear and sheer desperation of failed and expired politicians who see Paul Chukwuma as a major threat to their political future.
The release reads in parts, ” Anambra State needs to be rescued from the clutches of bad governance and misrule of APGA and Sir Paul Chukwuma is right man for the job”.

Peters further stated that Paul Chukwuma is a grassroot man, a loyal party man, a motivator of the youths, a philanthropist, mobilizer, and a good Christian who has the fear of God and built the structure of the APC in Anambra State.
He emphasized that those who have suddenly realized that they have failed the people in the past are resorting to campaign of calumny and spreading fake news to smear the good name and character of the APC hopeful for the Anambra State governorship election.

The APC Support Groups have decided to drum support for only true party members like Sir Paul Chukwuma, the Statement said.

He called on all party members to work for him as he is the only person that has all it takes to defeat APGA and enthrone APC in the state.
