Lagos APC Primaries Result: Ambode Loses To Sanwoolu, Refuses To Concede Defeat

The APC Chairman for Lagos state, Babatunde Balogun has declared Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu winner of the governorship primaries election held on Tuessday.

According to Balogun, Sanwo-Olu polled 970,851 votes while Governor Akinwunmi Ambode scored 72,901 votes.

Balogun said the election was free, fair and transparent. He said human beings were counted in the presence of observers.

He commended party members that turned in the 245 wards to participate in exercise.

He said it was a demonstration of their commitment to the party.

“The people have now rendered their decision and there is no reason to cast aside the sovereign will of the people. For me, as party chairman, to see vast number of people to come out to vote and then say there is no primary took place would to cast stain on the party and its leadership. This I shall not do.

” Those persons who now claim this election did not take place stand in direct opposition to the spirit of Democracy and the expressed will of APC members in Lagos. The party faithfuls have spoken and it is voice that is paramount.

“The Lagos chapter of the APC is committed to honouring their choice. Their decision must stand as the true expression of the APC in Lagos.

” To embark upon any other course will be to betray our members, our state and the core principle of progress and democracy upon which the APC is founded. Such a move is also at variance with the President’s strict adherence to the principle of transparency, openness and participatory democracy.”

    Shows they’ll rig the election against any Party candidate even if Ambode is adopted elsewhere
    APC just became a joke. Tinubu has begun the destruction of the party as expected from “his types”.
    While not campaigning for any party, We will however SHOOT APC DOWN.
    Eze911, Omar Omar, Eluku, Yiobayae and others, Let’s get busy.

    This opposite of the word “Afenifere” (Tinubu) does not mind sending Buhari out of Aso Rock for his selfish purpose. Could just be his evil intention.
    Now making Saraki and his associates into saints.
    Saraki needs to use this as a platform starting from Lagos. Free political advice. The youths would forgive and favor him over the “rigging politician”, the other parties just need to work with him and there goes the federal advantage.

    In the end, the masses will remain the loser. To me, all these guys have their entrance and exit strategy designed to fool the masses, let’s not be surprise that this is what Ambode signed with Tinubu at the beginning and they want to help their paddy take his share of the National cake. Boycut every election and all this fooling must stop.

    Someone please advice all those old thieves to go sit somewhere, and let real people who have the love of the country surface. OMG! It is ridiculous, that Ambode got so low votes! Na wa o! Look at Tinubu, agbaiya talking! After siphoning Lagos State money, I am so short of words, abeg.
    Politics is nonsense in Nige. People don’t have the fear of God anymore.
    Shameless old fools. It’s a pity.

    Liars! You rigged the primaries and we all know this, this was the reason why you kept postponing it. Lagosians have had enough of you guys; your lies and deceit for your personal gains. You want a puppet and you have voted for one, we shall see how far you go by God’s grace. Tinubu supported Buhari to win the election, even Aisha Buhari confirmed it, but as soon as he got in, Tinubu was sidelined and he couldn’t do anything about it. Buhari only wants to use him again for 2019 election but we are not having it. Where is the change you people are shouting about? APC is not genuinely fighting corruption, they are biased in their fight against corruption, they are witch hunting people that they don’t like and leaving corrupt APC members. We will vote all of you out come 2019 and no amount of rigging will keep you in. God is Supreme.

    If the primary is conducted many times in whatever format, Ambode cannot win. The oracle has spoken.
