Results announced so far from 20 out of the 21 local government areas in the state show Atiku leading with about 456,098 votes, having won in all the LGAs.

At 8 p.m. Monday, Francis Otunta, the Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University, accepted the result from the 20th local government.

The results from the remaining local government – Idemili North – is yet to be announced due to violence at Obosi which disrupted the collation of the results.

Earlier, at about 4 p.m., duplicates of form EC8A which was requested by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were retrieved from the police as stated in schedule 1(6) of the regulations and guidelines for the conduct of elections to aid collation of results for the affected local government.
