Lagos APC Primaries: If Tweets Were Votes, See How Ambode Would Have Fared At The Polls


Reaction Trails The Turn Out Of Lagos Governorship Primaries

If Tweets were votes, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State is likely to have pulled more support than he seemed to be having today.

This is as Nigerians have continued to reel out support and pity at the low support recorded for the Governor ahead and during the Lagos Governorship Primaries held Today.

Naija News reports that in some of the wards, his opposition, Babajide-Sanwo-Olu has recorded high number of votes compared to those who stood behind Ambode, though official results are still been expected.

For instance in Kosofe LGA: Wards C, D, E & F, Sanwo-Olu  attracted 16,153 while Ambode  pulled 83, similarly,  in Ejigbo Ward F5, Sanwo-Olu – 14, 490 but Ambode  attracted none.

Also in Ward D2 , Lagos Island, Sanwoolu  had 2280 while Ambode pulled no votes,  However in Epe ward C Ambode rallied the support of his people as he attracted 8773 votes while leaving 12 for his opponent.

Nigerians in their thousands took to Twitter to speak on Ambode’s performance noting that the Governor has tried his best in Lagos state and as such deserves a second term.

See some Tweets below:

Meanwhile Some have blamed the Governor for not withdrawing from the race after indications have been given by the National Leader of his party (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu ,that he had withdrawn his support for him and pitched his tent with his contender, Sanwo,Olu.
