Nigeria News – Lagos State APC Chairman ‘Tunji Balogun’ Declares Sanwo-Olu Winner Of Governorship Primary Election

Babajide Sanwo-Olu has been declared the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election held in Lagos State yesterday.

The declaration was made at the state headquarters of the party on Tuesday night, in Ogba, Ikeja by Tunji Balogun, the Lagos State APC chairman.

He stated, ”We were preparing for the election on the 1st of October before the cancellation was announced. The same thing was done again today but we were in the queue for most part of the day and I have observed that the elections have been free fair and transparent.

“It was direct primary, truly direct. Human beings were counted, not phones, not ballot papers. It would have been very painful to disenfranchise 1.5 million Lagosians who are members of APC who took part in today’s primary.

“I commend and salute them for their doggedness and forthrightness. The results have started come in and we waited till we got the last result.

“It is my pleasure and delight to announce the result of the election conducted in all the wards of Lagos state. The results are as follows Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, 72,901 votes. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, 970,851 votes.”
