The main opposition presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has won the presidential election in Ondo State.

Ondo State, south-Western Nigeria, is governed by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Nigeria’s ruling APC.

In the final results announced on Monday morning, Mr Abubakar of the PDP scored 275,901 votes to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC who scored 241,769 votes.

Total accredited voters were 598,586, total votes cast: 586,827, while rejected votes were 30,833

The total number of polling units where voting was cancelled is 80. The reasons include over-voting, widespread violence, intimidation of electorate and staff, failure of card readers and outright disruption of the election.

PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how Mr Abubakar won in 11 of Ondo’s 18 local governments.
The local governments won by the PDP are Akure North, Ifedore, Idanre, Ile Oluji/Okeigbo, Irele, Ondo East, Ose, Ondo West, Akure South, Ese Odo and Okitipupa local governments.

Akoko North East, Akoko North West and Akoko South East, Akoko South West, Odigbo, Ilaje and Owo local governments fell to the APC.
