President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday afternoon received Certificate of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to continue as Nigeria’s President for another four-year term.
INEC had early hours earlier declared Buhari winner of Nigeria’s presidential election, held last Saturday, announcing that he scored 15,191,847 votes to defeat his closest opponent, Atiku Abubakar, who polled 11,262,978 votes.
INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, presented the certificates to President Buhari and his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, at the National Collation Centre Abuja, few minutes after 2pm.
