Celebrities react as LP’s Peter Obi defeats Tinubu in Lagos
Against popular predictions, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has won the Lagos State election for president.
According to results released by the Independent National Electoral Commission in the state, Peter Obi defeated Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party to win the state.
Nine of the state’s municipal governments were won by Obi.
These local government areas (LGAs) are Ajeromi-Ifelodun, Amuwo-Odofin, Eti-Osa, Ikeja, Kosofe, Oshodi-Isolo, Somolu, Ojo, and Alimosho.
Agege, Apapa, Badagry, Epe, Ibeju-Lekki, Ifako-Ijaiye, Ikorodu, Lagos Island, Lagos Mainland, and Surulere saw Tinubu’s victory.
Many people have viewed Peter Obi’s victory in Lagos as unexpected given the APC’s past in the State.
