Buhari ahead in tight Nigeria Poll

Tuesday, 31 March 2015 - 20:20

Partial results from Nigeria's election give ex-military ruler Muhammadu Buhari a substantial lead over the incumbent, President Goodluck Jonathan.

However, some populous states in the south are yet to declare.

With just over half of Nigeria's states declared, General Buhari's All Progressives Congress is ahead by some two million votes.

A victory for General Buhari would make President Jonathan the first incumbent to lose an election in Nigeria.
