Election results only announced for 1 of Nigeria’s 36 states

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria’s election commission has announced the first results from the country’s closely watched presidential election, but it could days before a winner is declared. The Independent National Electoral Commission reported Sunday night that the the ruling All Progressives Congress party’s candidate, Bola Tinubu, secured the most votes in southwest Nigeria’s Ekiti state. Results from 35 other states and capital city Abuja were still pending after logistical problems and security concerns caused voting delays. People across the country continued casting ballots Sunday even though the general election, which included choosing a new national legislature, had been scheduled to end Saturday. Tinubu and two other candidates were considered the presidential front-runners.
