There was little to separate President Muhammadu Buhari and fierce opposition Atiku Abubakar in the presidential poll in Oyo State.
Atiku slightly edged Buhari in the APC state with 366,690 votes to the president’s 365,229. It indicates a less than 2,000 votes difference.
The total number of registered voters in the state is 2,796,542 while a total of 905,007 voters were accredited.
The total number of votes cast is 891,080 while 836,531 votes were valid. A total number of 54,549 votes were rejected.
The hard-fought victory gives Atiku his seventh state out of 17 states (including the FCT) that have so far been announced.
The collation of election results is currently ongoing in Abuja.
