About 72.7 million Nigerians are expected to elect a president that will lead West Africa’s most populous country for another four years.
The voters will also elect 468 members of the National Assembly: the Senate and the House of Representatives.
A total of 73 presidential candidates are participating in today’s election.
However, the contest is expected to be between incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC and ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party.
Voting has begun in several polling units while some are about to kick-off. In fact, Buhari and his wife Aisha Buhari voted as early as 8:15a.m in Daura, Katstina State.
