    The Independent National Electoral Commission has so far uploaded 147,578 results from 176, 846 polling units, five days after the presidential election.

    The figure represents 83 per cent of results from all the polling units.

    As of the time of filing this report, the electronic transmission of results was still ongoing.

    Nigerians expected that the election results would be uploaded on election day as promised by the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

    However, INEC came under fire for its failure to upload results to its viewing portal which led to the walkout of some parties agents on Monday, at the National Collation Centre.

    Checks by our correspondent on Thursday revealed that the results of all the polling units were yet to be uploaded on the INEC website.

    According to the Commission, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress won 8.8 million votes, while main opposition candidates Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party had 6.9 million and 6.1 million, respectively.
