With the announcement of the collation of votes from Borno State, which was the last state to be announced and where APC gathered 473, 543 of the total votes, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari has become the president elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
It was the fourth time Buhari would contest to govern Nigeria. He had failed three times, but his efforts are being crowned at the fourth attempt, 30 years after he was toppled in a military coup in August 1985.
President Goodluck Jonathan put a call through to the president elect even before the final results where announced and many has commend the action describing it as heroic and historic as it marked a new trend Nigerian leaders should imbibe.
