The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is in an early lead in the 2015 presidential elections which held nationwide on Saturday, March 28, 2015 and continued on Sunday in some parts of the country, Radio Nigeria has said.
The PDP candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan is winning by a landslide.
The Presidential aspirations of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Muhammadu Buhari may be cut short as the unofficial figures coming in suggests that he has failed to garner 25% of the votes in all of the following states:
10. Cross Rivers
11. Akwa Ibom
If Buhari fails to make 25% in 2 more states, even if he secures the highest votes, he cannot win the election.
According to law, the candidate with the most votes is declared the winner in the first round, as long as he gains at least 25% of the votes in two-thirds of Nigeria’s 36 states.
The ruling PDP is leading in Plateau, Taraba, Lagos, Ekiti, and Ondo states.
Radio Nigeria, also reported that the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan is leading in 22 States.
INEC has yet to declare any official results.
