Tensions high in the north amongst Buhari's supporters of plans to rig the vote count. Uncomfirmed reports by SaharaReporters claim PDP is having a field day rigging the presidential polls ( refer to: http://saharareporters.com/news-page/messy-presidential-elections-jonathan%E2%80%99s-team-unleashes-rigging-spree ). [ info by a citizen reporter in Nigeria ]
Notwithstanding early results released so far from a fraction of polling units nationwide, the picture of the margin of victory by each candidate would be clearer in the afternoon today, when more figures would have been released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). By all indications, it was a close vote that would be decided by the margin of victory in the north for Buhari and the margin in the south for Jonathan, and the extent of votes for each candidate in his opponent's winning section of the country. This would determine if there is an outright winner or a run-off election to decide a winner. [ info by an independent observer ]
Reuters tally from votes counted so far (mainly in the south), shows Jonathan won enough votes that may avoid a run-off election - that is if he also wins majority of the overall votes cast nationwide. Under the constitution, the winner of a presidential election must have a simple majority as well as 25 % of the votes in two thirds of the states. According to Reuters tally, Jonathan has already won 25 % of the votes in 24 states (17 in the South and 7 in the North). The only way there would be run-off election is if Buhari has majority of the overall votes cast nationwide.
