How 18 presidential candidates shared 25.3 million votes

The 2023 presidential election is finally over after a tense few days of collating results since Nigerians voted on February 25.

The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, crowned Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) the winner in the early hours of March 1, 2023.

Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) finished second and third, even though they each won 12 states — the same as Tinubu.

Out of a total of 93.5 million Nigerians on the register of voters, only 25.3 million participated.
