The Nigerian president election results are out and the incumbent, President Buhari, has conformably defeated his main rival Atiku Abubakar. But does the low turn out in the southern part of the country – where the opposition draws most of its support – suggest foul play? DiA’s Nic Cheeseman talks to the BBC about how we should interpret the election results, and what they mean for the country’s political future.
