Goodluck Jonathan – 2, 736

Total valid votes cast – 3, 542

Atiku Abubakar won in very few states and it was clear from the onset that Goodluck Jonathan was taking the day.
Goodluck Jonathan got a 100% vote in Akwa Ibom and his home state – Bayelsa.
Atiku Abubakar lost to Jonathan in his home state Adamawa, getting 31 votes to Jonathan’s 76 votes.
A question being asked is if Sarah Jibril was wise to contest in the primaries, she ended up with only 1 vote.
