The 2023 Nigerian Presidential election has been one of the most anticipated events in the country’s political history, with several notable politicians vying for the coveted position. One of the front runners in the race is Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

As of the latest results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Tinubu is leading the pack with a total of 8,321,550 million votes. What’s more, he has managed to secure 25% of the vote in 28 states across the country, putting him in a strong position to clinch the presidency.

However, with two more states left to be officially announced, the final outcome of the election still hangs in the balance. Nevertheless, the fact that Tinubu has managed to secure such a significant lead in the polls is a testament to his popularity among the Nigerian electorate.

Meanwhile, his closest rivals, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), have managed to secure 25% of the vote in 20 and 16 states respectively. This puts them in a considerably weaker position than Tinubu and the APC, and it remains to be seen whether they will be able to make up the lost ground in the remaining states.

Despite the strong showing by Tinubu and the APC, the election has been marred by reports of voter intimidation and irregularities in some parts of the country. These allegations have been strongly countered by and some opposition parties, but they have nonetheless cast a shadow over the credibility of the election.

As the final results of the election are awaited with bated breath, one thing is clear: the future of Nigeria’s political landscape hangs in the balance.
