The incumbent governor of Lagos State, Ambode, has rejected the collated result of Tuesday’s APC Primary election, which was made known to newsmen by Lagos APC Chairman, Tunde Balogun.
The chairman of the party in the state, Tunji Balogun made the declaration at the state headquarters of the party in Ogba, Ikeja, on Tuesday night.
Reacting to the result, Ambode Campaign Organisation released a statement, which reads;
“Ambode has not conceded any defeat as primary election is yet to hold in Lagos State following guidelines.
“These include the usage of membership slips and membership cards by registered party members, as well as the adoption of secret ballot system which protects the electorate.
“The NWC came from Abuja with sufficient ballot papers which have yet to be distributed. As a loyal and responsible party member and a democrat, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode is guided by the process announced by the party and shall await the new date of the governorship primary election,” the statement read in part.”
