Lagos APC Primaries: Reactions As NWC Upholds Sanwo-Olu As Winner


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.

In another series of tweets some have congratulated the APC Candidate, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for gaining the support of Lagosians while some have noted that he has become a subject to Tinubu.
