Buhari Leads With 3 Million Votes After Controversial Results From Rivers, Akwa Ibom Give Jonathan A Boost

Election observers as well as Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State had declared that last Saturday’s elections in the state turned into a fiasco, marked by intimidation and shootings of APC members and widespread manipulation by security agents.
