President Buhari’s win challenged by Nigeria’s opposition

Buhari might have won by a wide margin, but main opposition leader says ‘flawed polls’ will be contested in court.

President Muhammadu Buhari has been re-elected in Saturday’s polls, but his main opposition rival is calling the results “rigged”.

The runner-up from the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, says he will challenge the outcome in court.

Nigeria‘s courts have tended not to favour opposition parties in the past.
