Latest news from Nigeria confirm that Muhammadu Buhari was on Tuesday re-elected as Nigeria’s president after a delayed poll that angered voters and raised political temperatures, leading to claims of rigging and collusion.

Buhari, 76 years, took an unassailable lead of more than four million votes with the last states yet to be declared, making it impossible for his nearest rival, Atiku Abubakar, to win.

The former military ruler was first elected as civilian president of Africa’s most populous nation and leading oil producer in 2015.

Supporters of Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC) had gathered to celebrate at his campaign headquarters in the capital, Abuja, even before the final results were announced.
