The chairman of the Lagos State APC governorship primary election, Clement Ebri has declared Babajide Sanwo-Olu as the governorship candidate of the party after announcing the result of yesterday’s election.
APC chieftain, Jubril Gawat said this via a tweet some minutes ago, showing video evidence from TVC.
According to Gawat, Ebri made the declaration at a press conference in Lagos on Wednesday morning.
He had earlier distanced the committee from the election, opposing the open ballot system used.
Ebri said arrangements were in place to commence fresh elections where the secret ballot would be used.
But Tunde Balogun, chairman of the APC in Lagos, disagreed with Ebri, saying the election went on peacefully across the state.
Balogun declared Sanwo-Olu winner of the exercise, announcing that he polled 970,851 votes while Ambode secured 72,901 votes.
At his media briefing on Wednesday, Ebri reeled out the same figures.
