Kaduna, 29 March, 2023 / 9:25 pm (ACI Africa).
Pending the court ruling on the Presidential election in Nigeria, the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, could “behave differently”, succeeding in resolving some of the challenges President Muhammadu Buhari failed to address, a Catholic Archbishop in the West African nation has said.
On March 1, Nigeria’s electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declared the ruling party candidate, winner of the presidential election, BBC News reported.
INEC leadership announced that Mr. Tinubu garnered 8.8 million votes against 6.9 million garnered by Mr. Abubakar and Mr. Obi’s 6.1 million votes.
However, Nigeria’s main opposition parties, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) disputed the results, accusing the INEC of not uploading the presidential results from the polling stations.
In a Wednesday, March 29 report, Archbishop Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso of Kaduna Archdiocese says that unlike President Buhari, Mr. Tinubu's experiences can help him contain Islamic radicalism in Arica’s most populous nation.
