The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalled that the Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IBEC) had returned Kenyatta as winner of the first poll held on Aug. 8, before the country’s Supreme Court annulled the election in September.

The annulment followed a petition by opposition opponent, Mr Raila Odinga, who came second in the election.

The Supreme Court nullified the election on the grounds of “illegalities and irregularities” and ordered a rerun within 60 days.

However, Kenyatta won the rerun presidential election when he scored 7,483,895 votes representing 98.26 per cent.

The election was boycotted Odinga.
