Africa Elects Nigeria Election Centre

The Presidency

As noted in our electoral system explainer article, to win the Presidency, a candidate must receive both the most votes and 25% of the vote in 2/3 of the states and FCT. After the final report from Independent National Electoral Commission in the early morning of 1 March, Bola Tinubu (APC, centre) was declared as the winner, having met both criteria.

State results were first announced at state collation centres, then election officials went to the national collation centre in Abuja to finalize the totals. These maps reflect both state and national collation centre announcements, thus they could be subject to minor changes.
