Reactions have continued to trail the surprising results of the recently held All Progressive Congress Governorship Primaries held in Lagos yesterday.
This is as Babajide Sanwo-Olu emerged winner with 970,851 votes while incumbent Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode followed with 72,901 votes, thereby losing to his contender; a result which the NWC earlier rejected with the explanation that electoral panel sent from Abuja had not given a go ahead.
The NWC however made a U-turn to affirm the results few hours ago, declaring Sanwo-Olu has winner.
Politically active Nigerians boiling with mixed feelings to this development took to their twitter to expressed their diverse of what transpired in Lagos Politics in the last 24 hours.
While some have probed NWC’s affirmation after it initially cancelled the primaries, they also think that the NWC as well as Lagosians were only answering to the party’s National leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

If APC NWC and Adams Oshiomole had not upheld this sham Lagos APC primaries, they would have shot themselves in the leg. They would get the treatment Tinubu has dished out to Nuhu Ribadu and Atiku in the past. Sellout on the eve of elections.
You have to give it to Tinubu.

Lagosians weren't allowed to exercise their civil right.
APC NWC canceled the election.
Today they declared Babajide Sanwo-olu as the winner.
What does this tell you?
We don't know what's going on, we only know how to tweet the news#APCLagosPrimaries

After seeing the margin with which Babajide Sanwo-Olu allegedly won Akinwunmi Ambode in APC's primary in Lagos, it is safe to say

Babajide sanwo-olu just joined the league of Tinubu loyal dog. Thumbs up to Ambode, it's better to have a voice than hiding under the shadow of another man's cloud

Babajide Sanwo-olu will also go and see what Fashola saw and revolted, Ambode saw and revolted against Jagaban. It is a matter of time. Tinubu will do the same to you.

Since Tinubu has decided to dump Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for Babajide Sanwo-Olu, I tend to believe that the sitting governor was doing the right thing, that is, liberating Lagos from the shackles of one man but sadly Lagosians love slavery.

APC NWC who had earlier cancelled the election, had a rethink and declares Babajide Sanwo-Olu Lagos APC winner?
O boy, I doubt if Nigeria will get better in my generation
