ABUJA, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Nigeria's President Muhammadu
Buhari on Tuesday took an unassailable lead in the country's
election race, Reuters data based on results announced in
different parts of the country showed.

commission and of provisional ones announced in state capitals
showed that his main rival, businessman and former vice
president Atiku Abubakar, could no longer catch up.
