The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the Labour Party’s (LP) Peter Obi as the winner of the Presidential election in Lagos.
Obi polled 582,454 votes to defeat the All Progressives Party (APC) Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state.
INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Olusegun Agbaje opened the floor at the state collation centre in the Yaba area of the state on Sunday.
The results for 17 of the state’s 20 local government areas (LGAs) presented by 3:40am on Monday, including Lagos Mainland, Ikorodu, Epe, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Island, Badagry, Agege, Ikeja, Shomolu, Kosofe, Amuwo Odofin, Eti Osa, Surulere, Apapa, Ifako Ijaiye, Ajeromi, Oshodi Isolo.
Results presented for Mushin LGA have yet to get cleared by the state collation officer as they are being contested by the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) and thus had yet to be signed by most party agents.
INEC asked that they be presented afresh.
Meanwhile, Ojo and Alimosho are the only two LGAs left to be announced.
