Election results: I’ll wait for INEC, not depend on rumours —Buhari
Published

John Ameh, Katsina

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he will wait for the formal results declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission on the outcome of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly polls, instead of relying on rumours.

Buhari spoke shortly on arrival in Abuja from Katsina, his home state, where he spent the weekend to participate in the election.

“I don’t want to depend on rumours, but we will rather wait for INEC to announce the results”, he told the Nigerian Television Authority in Abuja

Speaking further, he said, “Well, l hope that Nigerians will appreciate that it was this government which made sure that they were allowed in security and peace to cast their votes for whichever party and candidates they wanted.”

The results rolling in from the 36 states show a tight race between the President and the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.
