Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and leading oil producer, is heading to the polls as the tight race between outgoing president Muhammadu Buhari and opposition leader Atiku Abubakar, a former vice-president, comes to an end.
Nigerian opposition leader Atiku Abubakar concludes his presidential campaign in his home state two days before the elections. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader said he was not there to campaign on the day because he has already been chosen by the people.
Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president of Nigeria from 1997 to 2007, is the main challenger to incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari in the upcoming election. The two candidates will face off on February 16th.
