Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has defeated President Muhammadu Buhari in Akwa Ibom State.

Atiku won in 28 of the 31 local government areas of the state, while Mr Buhari won in only two, according to the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Elections did not take place in one local government area, Udung Uko, because of a militant attack on INEC officials, INEC said.

Mr Buhari won in Godswill Akpabio’s local government area, Essien Udim, and Mbo.
