They include Gubio, Kaga, Magumeri, Mafa, Kwaya Kusar, Konduga, Nganzai, Dikwa and Bayo LGAs.

The former Lagos State governor is closely trailed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, who has so far garnered 30,948 votes.

Meanwhile, confusion trailed the announcement of presidential results for Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State, despite the ongoing vote count at the local government level.

The PUNCH reports that observers on Sunday rejected election results from Gubio Local Government Area because the total votes cast exceeded the total number of accredited voters.
