From the results declared so far, Buhari, polled a total of 8,520,436 votes. He led in: Kogi, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Jigawa, Kwara, Ogun, Osun, Ondo and Oyo States. His votes represents 56.8 percent of the total votes declared.
He is closely followed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Goodluck Jonathan who mustered a total of 6,488,210 votes representing 43.2 percent of the declared valid votes.
Dr. Jonathan led in the following states: Enugu, Abia, Imo, Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Plateau, Anamabra, Nassarawa and the FCT.
Chairman of INEC, Prof. Attahiru Jega who presided over the collation exercise said the release of the remaining results continues  today at 10:00am.
Meanwhile, INEC is yet to declare results in 18 (eighteen) states of the Federation, from which the results of he polls are now being expected: They are,  Adamawa, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Benue, Borno, Cross Rivers, Delta, Ebonyi, Edo, Gombe, Kebbi and Lagos.
Others are Niger, Rivers, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe, and Zamfara.
If the current tempo of performance by the All Progressives Congress over the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections is sustained, the former is likely to form the central government.
