Nigeria’s election commission this afternoon held a news conference as voting continues in some areas of the country (26 February).
Delays, attacks on polling stations, and concerns of 'irregularities' have all been huge parts of the election, which is the tightest since the end of military rule back in 1999.
Peter Obi, Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, are all thought to be in strong positions - however, there are 15 other candidates in the race.
Final results are not expected before Monday (27 February) at the earliest, and a candidate will need 25 per cent of ballots in at least two thirds of states to win the election.
