Preliminary results from across the country indicate that the All Progressives Congress might win 18 of 29 states where governorship election held Saturday.
On the other hand, the Peoples Democratic Party might win in 11 states.
According to Premium Times, projection suggests that the opposition All Progressives Congress, which won the March 28 presidential and national assembly elections, will prevail in Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, and Kwara states.
Others are Lagos, Nasarawa, Niger, Ogun, Oyo, Sokoto Yobe States and Zamfara states.
By that likely outcome, the PDP appears set to lose Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Jigawa, Kaduna, Katsina and Kebbi to the APC.
The PDP on the other hand will most likely win in Abia, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Delta, Ebonyi, Enugu, Gombe, Plateau, Rivers and Taraba states.
The party also appears set to defeat the APC in Imo.
The party will also nominate the federal minister who will govern the federal capital, Abuja.
On the other hand, the PDP will be in control in 15 states, given that it is presently the ruling party in Ondo, Ekiti, Bayelsa and Kogi states, where governorship election did not hold Saturday.
The All Progressives Grand Alliance, remains in charge in Anambra. It appears unable to prevail in Abia where it was projected by some analysts to win.
