This interesting development is continuation of Governor Rotimi Amaechi's position against the holding of elections in his state. On Saturday when he got to his polling unit the Governor had asked to sight the result sheet. Polling officers at the unit had told him the result sheets were not as yet available. The Governor had thereafter called for a cancellation of the elections in the State. Recently Governor Amaechi, formerly of the ruling PDP before moving over to APC , has been one of the most vocal critics of President Goodluck Johnathan. This development may yet add an attention grabbing perspective to post election dynamics.

Although Social Media has been inundated with unofficial results for over 24hours in what may be amusingly termed "Nigeria's Twitter Voter Count", INEC-- the body with constitutional responsibility to declare results, only commenced the declaration of official results today. In total results declared so far:
Incumbent, President Johnathan leads in terms of absolute numbers while Challenger, General Muhammed Buhari leads in number of States won. A total nine States has been declared so far.
INEC is currently on recess while awaiting results from more States. Declaration of results will re-commence at 20:00 i.e. 8:00PM Nigerian time.
Both parties will be looking to attain the at least 25% in two thirds of the thirty six states which is a requirement for winning the elections.
