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.

Buhari’s lead in the poll was despite a sponsored documentary against him that is being repeatedly shown on AIT stations across Nigeria.

To avoid the backlash from the Presidency, the station had to abruptly end the poll on Tuesday.

Before the poll was taken down, Buhari garnered a total of seven thousand, eight hundred and twenty five votes, representing over seventy six per cent (79%) of the total online poll.
