A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Femi Fani-Kayode, has declared that the incumbent Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has defeated his opponents in the Saturday governorship poll.
Sanwo-Olu in his reelection bid for his second term had faced difficult battle from the candidates of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour and the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, better known as Jandor.
On a post in his verified twitter handle after the election on Saturday, Fani-Kayode claimed that the LP candidate and the PDP flagbearer have been defeated.
He wrote, “Those that believed that Lagos is a ‘no man’s land’ have been roundly defeated, badly humiliated and finally taught the lesson of their lives by voters today in a peaceful, free and fair election. The matter is settled and the message is 8-fold:
“That God answers prayers even in the most complicated situations and difficult circumstances , that He is able to deliver us from the hands of our strong enemies and the enemy within and that He rules in the affairs of men. That Lagos belongs to the Yoruba.
“That @jidesanwoolu remains Governor of Lagos state regardless of the threats, plotting, scheming, rantings and ramblings of envious, hate-filled, bitter, demon-possessed and satanically- inspired men”.
However, the Independent National Electoral Commission is yet to announce any winner but results flying on social media indicate that the incumbent governor is in early lead.
