President-Elect Buhari accepted the call early Tuesday evening, this source told SaharaReporters. 

The successful campaign of opposition candidate Buhari marks a historic moment in Nigeria's history. At the time of writing all votes have been collated by the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), except for Borno State. INEC Chairman Attahiru Jega will address members of the press and Nigerian public at 8pm, where he is expected to announce the results from Borno State.

A press release from Buhari's camp can be expected shortly, this same source said.
