The results of all 36 states have been announced at the International Conference Centre (ICC) by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), with President Muhammadu Buhari leading Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by very close to three million votes.
INEC has gone into a meeting to finalize results ahead of reconvening at 3 am, but APC supporters are not waiting for that and are already jubilating in Abuja.
The party faithful who could not hide their feelings defied the heavy security presence at the campaign office and made their way into the facility, chanting solidarity songs.
Also to add colour to the ceremony, a live band and high life musician was on ground entertaining the crowd. Some of them were also seen with bottles of champagne.
