2019 Nigerian general election


The 2019 Nigerian general Election came with a lot of tension and hope as regards what the outcome will be.

 The General elections initially scheduled for 16 February, 2019, was postponed by Election Commission by a week at 3am on the original polling day, with claims of logistical challenges in getting electoral materials to polling stations on time. 

The election which eventually held in Nigeria on 23 February 2019 to elect the President, Vice President, National Assembly and the Senate got delayed in some places until 24 February due to electoral violence. These elections were said to have been the most expensive ever held in Nigeria, costing ₦69 billion more than the elections held in 2015.

After the conclusion of the postponed election on 24th of February, collation of the result started at 11am on Monday, 25th February at the National Collation Centre at Abuja and continued 25th and 26th

Immediately following the elections, there were claims of widespread fraud by the opposition. The claims included accusations of ballot box snatching, vote-trading and impersonation.

On the 27th of February, 2019, at midnight, The Chief Returning Officer and INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu announced the result at the National Collation Centre declaring him the President of Nigeria having met the constitution requirements. 

Buhari was declared re-elected, winning in 19 states with 15,191,847 votes defeating other 72 candidates including Atiku Abubakar, the Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who won 17 states and the FCT with 11, 255,978 votes and occupied the second position. 

Yakubu said that the registered voters was 82,344, 107, accredited voters was 29,364,209, total votes cast was 28,614,190, total valid votes was 27,324,583 and rejected votes was 1,289,607.
President Muhammadu Buhari was issued a Certificate of Return, and would be sworn in on 12 June, 2019.

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know
    how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!
