With the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announcing collated  results for the presidential election from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, and having analysed the state and local government areas' results in the possession of THISDAY reporters from around the country, The Board of Editors of THISDAY calls this presidential elections in favour of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Major-General Muhammadu Buhari. 

THISDAY Newspapers can comfortably project that Buhari has won the 2015 presidential election.

While both Buhari and President Goodluck Jonathan  have satisfied the constitutionally required 1/3 in 24 states, General Buhari's  current  majority is unassailable  by any results still to be declared. We congratulate President Goodluck Jonathan for giving Nigeria the legacy of free and fair elections and urge him to immediately concede. We congratulate General Buhari for a hard won victory after four attempts at the presidency, and urge him to not only be magnanimous in victory but give Jonathan's supporters -  especially the  minorities -  comfort.

The Editors of THISDAY urge all Nigerians that  the time for healing has begun.
