Who is the new elected president of Nigeria?
Former Lagos Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged victorious in Nigeria’s presidential election this week – the most contested poll since 1999.
The 70-year-old candidate won 36% of the vote, beating Atiku Abubakar, the 76-year-old former vice president in his sixth presidential bid, and Peter Obi, a 61-year-old third-party candidate and political outsider popular among Nigerian youth .
Today, Tinubu leads Africa’s most populous country and largest economy. His supporters say his track record in improving infrastructure and public services in Lagos, the country’s commercial hub, means he is well equipped to deal with Nigeria’s spiraling economic and security crises.
Here’s what you need to know about Nigeria’s new leader, who will take office in May.
