President-elect to emerge today,’ Jega says

Prof. Attahiru Jega

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega has said that the results of Nigeria’s presidential elections would be announced on Monday, March 30.

Jega stated that the President-elect would be revealed today despite the extension of the polls in some areas of the country.

The INEC Chairman gave the assurance on Sunday, March 29, as election results began to trickle in from various states.

“Some people assume that when I said 48 hours( for the release of the results), it starts from the morning the elections commenced. It is 48 hours after elections have ended, like yesterday (Saturday),” Jega said.

“You start counting 48 hours from yesterday (Saturday) when substantial majority of the polling units ended elections,” he added.

The INEC Chairman also expressed satisfaction over the general conduct of the elections.

This year’s race and emerging results show fierce competition between incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, one of whom is expected to win the election.
