• Clinches 25% or more in over 24 states

• Buhari wins 25% in more than 14 states

• Ribadu wins in Osun

• Shekarau gets no state

HAIL TO THE CHIEF!  This is the tune played to herald the appearance of the United States President at any public occasion and its first line is “Hail to the chief we have chosen for the nation.” The original line of this song, written by Sir Walter Scott, was “Hail to the chief who in triumph advances…”

For Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, both lines now ring true.

Last Saturday’s presidential election has gone down in the history of Nigeria in several respects: It has produced President Goodluck Jonathan as the nation’s fourth Executive President in the Fourth Republic.

In the First Republic, the late President Nnamdi Azikiwe, occupied the office in a ceremonial capacity.

Before him were former President Shehu Shagari (Second Republic), the Third Republic was botched by former Military President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, who annulled the June 12, 1993 presidential polls, believed to have been won by the late Moshood Abiola, Olusegun Obasanjo (Fourth Republic, which the late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and the incumbent continued).

The election is also unique as it has been generally adjudged as the most peaceful, most transparent and well-organised polls, coming behind the Option A4 system of 1993.

It is also the most keenly contested race, especially between the leading candidates - Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC’s) Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

In fact, results from across the states of the federation early yesterday narrowed the race to Jonathan and Buhari, until the full results came except in Taraba, which showed that Jonathan won convincingly but not a landslide victory.

At the last count, he had scored over 25 per cent in more than 24 states required by the constitution to be declared the winner of the election.

From the already received results from virtually all the 35 states of the federation, Jonathan maintained a comfortable lead, thereby ruling out a possible run-off. While the PDP won virtually in all the states in the South except in Osun State, where the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) presidential candidate, Malam Nuhu Ribadu topped, Buhari also held sway in the North, especially in the North-West and North-East geo-political zones. In states where the PDP was overwhelmed by the CPC in the North, Jonathan still clinched the mandatory 25 per cent, except in a few cases.

Jonathan has so far won in Abia, Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Benue, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Imo, Kwara, Lagos, Ogun, Ondo, Oyo, Plateau, Rivers, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Buhari won in Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, Kaduna and Zamfara while Ribadu won only in Osun State.


In Abia State, Jonathan got I,175,984 of the 1,200,552 representing 99 per cent of the total vote cast.

Jonathan beat his closest rivals, Ribadu, who got 4,392 votes and Buhari, who recorded 3,743 votes.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Austin Okojie, said the ANPP recorded 1,455 votes, the PDC, 1026, and PPP 404.
