In the midst of the serious battle for the presidency between the two major political parties, the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, there comes an unknown contestant who has become the accidental third force.

Dr Nicolas Felix is the Presidential candidate for the Peoples Coalition Party.

According to the results of the presidential election as released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, Felix’s PCP polled
110,196 votes to emerge the second runner-up behind the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar who polled over 11 million votes.

Our correspondent who spoke to some electorate gathered that many ignorantly voted for PCP instead of PDP. A voter, who simply identified herself as Mrs. Obi said she voted for PCP instead of PDP due to the similarity in logo.

No one saw this coming as he polled more votes than Kingley Moghalu of Alliance for New Nigeria (21,886), Fela Durotoye of Young Progressive Party (16,779) and Omoyele Sowore of V (33,953) who have a combined votes of 72,618.

Researching into Felix’s profile,it was observed that the PCP logo was almost similar to that of the People’s Democratic Party and coincidentally placed before Atiku’s
PDP on the ballox paper.

Many may argue that it was a strategy to confuse voters to gain votes but Dr. Felix still enjoys the fame of coming third nevertherless.
