How Is The Winner Decided? by nwanyionitsha: 1:40pm On Feb 25, 2019
Section 134 (2) states that “A candidate for an election to the office of President shall be deemed to have been duly elected where, there been more than two candidates for the election- (a) he has the highest number of votes cast at the election; and (b) he has not less than one-quarter of the votes cast at the election each of at least two- thirds of all the states in Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Does this mean the winner must get 25% vote in Abuja to be declared winner?
Is it the number of states won or the number of votes that matters?
