3/31/2015 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Fulani Muslim Muhammadu Buhari (All Progressive Congress) has unseated Christian incumbent Goodluck Jonathan (People’s Democratic Party) in Nigeria’s presidential election.
Jonathan called Buhari Tuesday evening, local time, to concede defeat and congratulate Buhari on the victory, according to the BBC. Buhari held a lead of more than 2 million votes. The defeat for Jonathan represents the first time in Nigerian history that a sitting president has been defeated by a challenger and the first opposition victory since the People’s Democratic Party ascended to power in 1999.
