Tinubu declarado vencedor das presidenciais na Nigéria

March 1, 2023 - O candidato do partido no poder, Bola Tinubu, foi declarado vencedor das presidenciais na Nigéria, apesar da oposição reclamar a repetição.

The 70-year-old veteran politician got 37% of the vote, official results show.

His main rival Atiku Abubakar polled 29%, and Labour’s Peter Obi 25%. Their parties had earlier dismissed the poll as a sham, and demanded a rerun.

Tinubu is one of Nigeria’s richest politicians, and based his campaign on his record of rebuilding the biggest city, Lagos, when he was governor.

He was nevertheless defeated in the city by Obi, a relative newcomer who mobilised the support of many young people, especially in urban areas, shaking up the country’s two-party system.

Tinubu won most other states in his home region of the south-west, where he is known as a “political godfather” – who helps put others into office, the BBC said.
