“It would be very painful to disenfranchise the over 1.5 million members who voted across the 245 wards in the state.

“At the end of the exercise, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu polled 970, 851 votes and Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode scored 72, 901 votes. With this, Mr. Babajide is declared the winner.

“I thank party members for participating in the election and their dedication to democracy.”

Some APC members complained that the Lagos governorship primary election was not free and fair.

They alleged that party leaders beat up those supporting the Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and used thugs to intimidate them.
