Babajide Sanwo-Olu

The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu as winner of Tuesday’s governorship primary.

Chairman of the party in the state, Alhaji Tunde Balogun, announced Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the primary.

This was contrary to the position of the Clement Ebri-led National Working Committee appointed electoral panel, which had earlier nullified the election.

Ebri had said that the primary would be rescheduled as the state chapter has no power to conduct the party governorship primary election on its own.

Announcing the results to newsmen in Ikeja, Balogun said that Sanwo-Olu polled 970, 851 votes to defeat Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode, who polled 72, 901 votes.

The announcement was in contrast of the pronouncement of the electoral panel which had declared that election did not hold in Lagos.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that both parties had on Monday, at a meeting, disagreed on the pattern of primary to adopt without reaching a consensus.
