Election Results: I don’t want to depend on rumours, I’ll rather wait for INEC, says Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari has said he’ll rather wait for the presidential election result from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) than depend on unfounded rumours.

WuzupNaija reports that INEC had earlier warned Nigerians to disregard other election results if not published or announced by the commission.

The President made this statement on arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday after exercising his franchise in Daura, Katsina State, the Nation reports.
