Nigeria begins announcing presidential results+++ In Senegal, the prime minister claims that president Macky Sall has been re-elected +++EU top official Donald Tusk calls on Theresa May to delay Brexit
Official results show that incumbent Muhammadu Buhari has won Nigeria's presidential election. The opposition has rejected the results, claiming voter fraud and irregularities.
Observers say Saturday's vote to re-elect Muhammadu Buhari or his main rival Atiku Abubakar is too close to call. The election was marred by technical issues that delayed the opening of polling stations in some areas.
What does Senegal have in common with Nigeria regarding elections? Very little if anything. The former is regarded as a stable democracy, the latter is not. But experts say Abuja and Dakar can learn from each other.
The former Nigerian vice president has hinted at plans to further privatize corrupt state institutions; however, he continues to deny his own corruption allegations in the lead-up to Saturday's general election.
