The Presidential primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been concluded.

At the end of the exercise, former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu polled 1149 votes to clinch the presidential ticket of the ruling party.

However, the most surprising results for most Nigerians were that of three of the 14 presidential aspirants who contested the primaries.

The three aspirants scored zero votes, thereby failed to secure any vote from the over 2,000 delegates who voted in the election.

They are the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, renowned pastor, Tunde Bakare and Tein Jack-Rich.

Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation polled 316 votes while Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo got 235 votes.
