Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, has defeated the President Goodluck Jonathan, who is the presidential candidate of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in an online poll conducted by the African Independent Television (AIT), reports Sahara Reporters.
