The streets of the north-central Nigerian city of Jos stand empty as local residents await the results of what many are considering the most followed and participated in election in Nigeria's history.

As the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC collate results from various parts of the country, Nigerians are following with keen interest and hoping the man of their choice will win the election.

The election resulted in a surprise upset for incumbent candidate Goodluck Jonathan, who has faced heavy scrutiny for his handling of the Boko Haram crisis. Former military ruler Muhammadu Bahari went home the luckier and will be taking over the presidency.
