The Governor of Lagos State and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has won 18 local government areas out of the 20 LGAs of the state in the just concluded governorship and state House of Assembly elections.
The results were announced on Sunday by the Independent National Electoral Commission at its state collation centre in Yaba, Lagos.
Sanwo-Olu, who is seeking re-election, is contesting against the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Abdulaziz Adediran, and candidate of the Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
The incumbent polled the highest number of votes in Lagos Island, Epe, Agege, Ibeju-lekki, Surulere, Ikeja, Mushin, Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Apapa, Ifako-Ijaiye, Badagry and Lagos Mainland.
Other LGAs where Sanwo-Olu won were Alimosho, Ojo, Ikorodu, Kosofe, Oshodi-Isolo, and Amuwo-Odofin.
However, his opponent, Rhodes-Vivour, defeated the ruling party in Amuwo-Odofin.
The only result left is from Eti-Osa LGA, which is yet to be released due to the election currently being held at the Victoria Garden City polling units.
Owing to this, the Independent National Electoral Commission has adjourned the final announcement of the outcome of the poll till 5pm on Sunday (today).
