There are indications that the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress might cancel the outcomes of the Surulere Local Government Area primary election, in addition to these of Ikorodu and Badagry LGAs held on Saturday, over studies of violence within the areas.
Surulere is the base of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
Recall that two individuals have been stated to have died within the Surulere violence, whereas Badagry and Ikorodu have been stated to have recorded “excessive ranges of violence.”
Sources instructed our correspondent that aside from the violence, the occasion obtained complaints of doctoring of outcomes, amongst others.
One of many sources stated, “That of Surulere is the worst. A strong politician introduced in hoodlums from neighbouring communities. The result’s what we noticed on Saturday. The state govt members are wanting on the complaints, particularly within the three council, their outcomes can be cancelled.”
The spokesperson for the party, Mr Seye Oladejo, didn’t pick his phone when our correspondent called him on Sunday.
However earlier, Oladejo in an announcement on Sunday, stated the APC appealed to safety brokers to research the violence and prosecute the culprits.
“We want to admonish the safety businesses to conduct thorough investigations to bring the culprits to book and keep law and order.
“We want to reiterate that hoodlums, cultists and different outlaws are usually not members of our occasion and won’t be tolerated,” the assertion added.
