#Nigerianelection2023: Borno drama as Tinubu retains 9th LGA lead


The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has continued to lead with 70,892 votes in Borno State, winning in the nine local government areas so far announced by the returning officers.

They include Gubio, Kaga, Magumeri, Mafa, Kwaya Kusar, Konduga, Nganzai, Dikwa and Bayo LGAs.

The former Lagos State governor is closely trailed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, who has so far garnered 30,948 votes.

Meanwhile, confusion trailed the announcement of presidential results for Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State, despite the ongoing vote count at the local government level.

On Monday, the second day of the presidential collation exercise at Multipurpose Hall 5 of the Kashim Ibrahim College of Education, Maiduguri, the agent of the PDP claimed that votes were still being counted in Konduga when the results were being read at the state capital.

The PUNCH reports that observers on Sunday rejected election results from Gubio Local Government Area because the total votes cast exceeded the total number of accredited voters.

This followed the inability of the Assistant Electoral Officer (Operations) of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Borno State, Zahra Musa, to reconcile the numbers despite two attempts allowed by the Presidential Collation Officer, Prof. Jude Rabo.

The results as announced at the collation centre are as follows:

1. Gubio LGA
