Ambode in clear lead at Lagos APC governorship primaries

Akinwunmi Ambode

Counting of delegates’ votes have begun at the Lagos All Progressives Congress, APC, primaries with Akinwunmi Ambode in a clear lead.

About 5,700 delegates from 20 local government areas cast their votes for the 13 candidates seeking the governorship ticket of the party.

Counting is currently ongoing at the venue. Of the almost 1,000 votes counted so far, Mr. Ambode has gotten more than half of the votes.

Femi Hamzat, Commissioner for Works, and Adeyemi Ikuforiji, Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, trail a distant second and third place respectively.

The exercise has been peaceful so far, except for a few incidents of dispossession of people’s valuables outside the venue.
