The figure represents 92 per cent of results from all the polling units.

Nigerians expected that the election results would be uploaded on election day as promised by the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

However, INEC came under fire for its failure to upload results to its viewing portal which led to the walkout of some party agents on Monday at the National Collation Centre.

Checks by our correspondent on Sunday revealed that the results of all the polling units were yet to be uploaded on the INEC website.

According to the Commission, BolaTinubu, the candidate for the ruling All Progressives Congress, won 8.8 million votes, while main opposition candidates Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi had 6.9 million and 6.1 million, respectively.
