The runner-up in Senegal’s presidential election has accepted the outcome of the vote in which President Macky Sall has been named the victor.
Civil society groups monitoring Nigeria’s presidential and parliamentary election said on Monday that 39 people have been killed in violence linked to the vote.
Senegal’s Macky Sall, a stolid 56-year-old ex-geologist who challenged his former mentor to become president, has big plans to take his country “further and higher” on the path to development.
Senegalese voters headed to the polls on Sunday for an election President Macky Sall is expected to win after strong economic growth in his first term, although rights groups criticise him for squeezing out rivals.
Millions of Nigerians have ascended to the various voting stations across the country to perform their civic rights and choose the country’s leader for the next four years.
