Excitement bubbled in the All Progressives Congress, APC’s camp, as results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections continue to trickle into the public and the collation centres of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, nationwide.
Early returns from polling units in the six South West states of Lagos, Ekiti, Ogun, Ondo, Osun and Oyo showed that the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was ahead, while Labour Party’s Peter Obi was dominant in the South East.
Obi also made some in roads in Lagos State and former strongholds of the PDP in Edo and Delta.
The Labour Party presidential candidate had also won nine of the 13 polling units at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.
But his performance in the North was abysmal where the APC and the PDP were sharing the votes in the three geo-political zones in the North. The APC was also doing well in Yobe and Sokoto States.
