On Wednesday, the International Conference Centre in Abuja hosted the Independent National Electoral Commission's ceremony where certificates of return were presented to Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, the president-elect and vice president-elect, respectively.
Tinubu won the presidential election that took place on February 25, 2023, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress. About 12 hours after INEC declared them as winners, Tinubu and Shettima were handed their certificates.
During the presentation, Tinubu's supporters sang 'On your mandate we shall stand, Bola,' as he and his wife, Remi, received the certificate. Shettima and his wife, Hajia Nana, also collected their certificate at the event.
Tinubu emerged victorious with 8,794,726 votes, while Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party came in second with 6,984,520 votes. Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party came in third and fourth place, respectively, with 6,101,533 and 1,496,687 votes.
