Reliable information from Peter Okwoche of the BBC has it that 19 of the 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja has their election results collated and announced.

Of these 19 states, the major opposition party, the All Progressives Congress(APC)'s presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu Buhari(Rtd) is leading in the ongoing presidential polls by a whooping 2.3 million votes.

However, election pundits cautions that we cannot affirm which candidate will emerge the winner seeing that 19 additional states' election results are yet to be collated and announced.

According to the electoral umpire, INEC, collation and announcement of results will commence from 10.00 am today.

The teething question running to and fro the minds of virtually every Nigerian is: Who will become Nigeria's next President -Buhari or Jonathan?

More updates are on the way. This update correct an earlier publication that put collated results at 27 states, and 3 million leadership by Buhari. It was an oversight.
