Sanwo-Olu declared as the winner of Lagos APC governorship primary

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

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode scored 72,901 votes while Jide Sanwo-Olu got 970,851 thereby making him the winner of the APC primaries which he described as ‘free and fair’.

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

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.

However, the Lagos State Chairman of the party, Alhaji Tunde Balogun, announced Sanwo-Olu as the winner of the primary.
