PDP rejects Lagos governorship result after candidate concedes defeat

Jimi Agbaje casting his vote

The agent of the Peoples Democratic Party has refused to sign the final result sheet of the Lagos State Governorship election, saying he “cannot accept the results”.

His refusal came after the PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State, Jimi Agbaje, who polled 659,788 votes, conceded defeat.

His All Progressives Congress counterpart, Akinwumi Ambode, scored 811,994, representing 52.9 per cent of 1,534029, the total votes cast, to emerge winner.

Mr. Agbaje’s campaign had told PREMIUM TIMES that the PDP candidate telephoned his APC challenger, Mr. Ambode at 6:58 p.m. to concede defeat.

The PDP agent, Mr. Agoro, condemned the electoral process, saying the exercise was marred by irregularities including use of manual accreditation in Ikate, Ibeju Lekki, Badagry and Mainland Local Government Areas; over-voting in Ward 2 Unit 26 of Ikorodu LGA; and compromised electoral materials.

Mr. Agoro expressed disappointment that all “the evidences” of irregularities were not captured in the Returning Officers’ report.

While the officer denied the claim of use of manual accreditation, saying the card readers functioned optimally during the accreditation exercise, and that there was no compromise of electoral materials, he urged Mr. Agoro to write a formal complaint letter for investigation.

Mr. Agoro however demanded the invalidation of Mr. Ambode’s victory on the basis of the significance of cancelled votes.

However, the Returning Officer, Mr. Oyewole, said because the total cancelled votes of 13,502 was less than the differential votes of 152,206, the complaints of the PDP agent was not enough to invalidate Mr. Ambode’s victory.

The agent of the APC, Adetokunbo Afikuyomi, in his reaction said the allegations of the PDP “do not make sense”.

  • Proud Yoruba

    Fellow Yorubas, we have done it, we fired GEJ (the big fish), we fired Agbaje (the ibo lover) now it remains for us to fire ibos from Yorubaland. Hear me out please.

    Please let us not be sentimental, it is good to nip a problem in the bud. The ibos have provoked us, deceived us, scammed us, hated us despite our goodwill and benevolence. It is clear to everyone that they have come not to live in harmony, but to dominate and take over. In their infantile mind, they believe that stealing political power from the Yorubas will give them the easy wealth they seek. Unfortunately, ibos cannot run our state better than Yorubas. They are not stakeholders.

    Their incessant taunting is driving Yorubas to loose their cool like the Oba. It is the devils work to harass people to bad behavior. We do not want things to escalate to a point of violence. We Yorubas are level-headed and sophisticated people, we will not be provoked to violence, but we will not be trampled on either. We have all seen it, they call Yorubas, cowards, amala monkeys, ewedu, etc. Ask yourself why do you deserve this abuse for your goodwill? Ibos are incurable haters.

    God is opening the door to deal with ibos for us. As the plan starts to unfold, please do not resist or start fighting for ibos, it is God’s will.

    1. God wants to develop Nigeria very fast, if ibos do not go back to their land, who will develop it for them? Are we supposed to keep developing in Yoruba land at the expense of the rest of Nigeria developing? Our development is already lobsided with SW GDP of $136billion,and SE GDP of $36 billion. By the time we get to $250 billion, there will be no ibo left in the SE.

    2. Imagine a senario where something happens to Lagos, do you have any other homeland to go to? Ibos will run fast back to their homeland. If you have nowhere else to go, that is what makes you a stakeholder.

    3. Yorubaland has developed fast because we Yorubas stayed in our land through the difficult times, we did not run away to other lands.

    4. There are resources in every land in Nigeria. We need the synergy of having every area of Nigeria contributing their resources to benefit all peoples of Nigeria.

    If Yorubaland keeps developing at current pace, we will not have room for the overcrowding that is already occurring now! Developing our area is causing lazy parasites to abandon their land for our cities, now they have started taking our jobs, our youths are getting restless and we pray it does not reach a boiling point.

    Let us move Nigeria forward, all REGIONS must be developed.

    God bless the Yoruba Nation, God bless Nigeria.

    • akyn

      I suggest the Igbos start by developing the Port Harcourt Port for international standard for shipping and receiving since they know how to import fake drugs and products from all over the world.

      • Proud Yoruba

        Right. There is so much opportunity in Nigeria, why concentrate everything in Lagos? And you are right, they need to develop the port because they keep insisting that is why they are in Lagos. We need more economic activity in all corners of Nigeria, Our country will move from the 21st largest economy in the world to the top ten in less than five years, I guarantee you.

        • Lade

          I enjoy the discuss cos no insults and issues being tackled. I think the Igbos have been overzealous and they have not acknowledged the hospitality of the Yorubas. For them to say Lagos is no man’s land is almost unforgivable. Now, they have said the APC government did not do well, so why do they keep coming to Lagos or why do they stay? Inside of them, they know Lagos is the most vibrant state and can support their commercial expertise and interest yet they abuse the people. The Oba’s case was a mistake and APC, Tinubu, Ambode all came out to dissociate themselves from it yet the Igbos kept on and on and on about it. This became counter productive. Did they expect the Oba to kneel down and say sorry? Now that they ‘lost’ what do they think should happen in terms of land approvals, trade centers, permits, policies and local laws? Historically, the Igbos have been seen to like to dominate and this caused the unfortunate resentment in the north in the 60s. Meanwhile, in the East, they even tell banks to look for Igbo branch managers and would not accept non-indigenes. I think they need to do a meeting of all Igbos and look at these allegations, then take a position.

          • Proud Yoruba

            I think it is time for them to go back to their land and start aggressively developing it. Oil prices are coming down fast, I have heard that Nigerian oil is now sitting with no buyers. We have to pivot towards agriculture and mining to make up for the shortfall in revenue. This will benefit the North.

            But SS and SE may suffer, now is the time to go back to iboland and start new economic activity like developing the ports. We must reduce the population of Lagos and we must make it homogeneous Yorubaland again, The ibo interference in our politics is depriving us of our right to self-determination. They are not stakeholders in our land and therefore cannot rule nor represent us.

            Anyway, things are getting to a boiling point and we Yorubas cannot take it anymore.

        • Lade

          There are ports already in the SE/SS but they don’t have the dynamism of market like the SW. Calabar is there, Onne is there and PH. They should put pressure on their governors, reps to turn the region into a vibrant productive and consuming market. Now, they mostly produce but no empowerment and functionality to consume in terms of interest in their areas.

      • newnigerian1970

        I like your comments apart from the fake drugs part. Akunyili risked her life to fight the fake drug importers. My mum died from fake drugs. So we don’t all love criminals in Igboland. In fact they’re thriving in one Nigeria, if somehow we became free to deal with our criminals independently, they would disappear overnight as we won’t look back. Anyway, development should be spread. The only politician who has dealt with this point is Fashola. I indeed want him as next president of Nigeria after Buhari as he would work his magic on all regions.

      • Joe761

        Little knowledge of your country Akyn, Port Harcourt does not belong to Ibos.

    • Lanre

      I share your sentiments broadly. But we cannot afford to hate Igbos even if they hate us. We must use the argument of superior logic or the logic of superior argument to defeat those who do not want to progress. The Igbos must be seen broadly as partners and not rivals. Having said that, the only course for Yorubas to take and adopt is for us to work for our own country. The current regime is a wasteful experiment and Buhari is nothing but a disastrous return to those old days when you have some people in Babanriga walking the hallways in Abuja (cap-in-hand) doing “rankadede” begging for contract. We must fight that system of contractors, beggars and hangers-on who are about to take over again. The only way to do that is to work for our own country. Therein lies our salvation.

      • Proud Yoruba

        Lanre, I don’t think there is anything about hating ibos. Please tell us 1) how we deal with the issue of overcrowding in Lagos (because when Fashola deported ibos, there was uproar) 2) how do we compel other regions to develop, and 3) how exactly are we partners with ibos?

        Jona was probably the most corrupt administration in the history of Nigeria, but it didn’t make a dent in the development of the SW region, so we are not relying on the center. We cannot do all the work!

        • Lanre

          Your questions are multi-faceted. There is a group of us working hard toward a greater Yoruba land. The simple answer to your question is independence for the main ethnic groups. That will do a lot to remove suspicion. How do we achieve independence? A referendum. The Igbos and the South-South appear ready for their own union and I believe it is a good thing. We are partners with Igbos because when you have an ethnic group that is 25%-35% of the population in your state (Lagos), they are not enemies. Moreover, their contribution to the economy of Lagos is quite significant. Those who are ignorant will insult Yorubas and vice versa. Overcrowding is economics. Simple laws of demand and supply will solve that. Not enough space to enunciate.
          Finally, many young Yoruba men and women will eventually realize the huge potential their nation (Yorubaland) holds for them. If the States in the region can raise their own taxes and spend according to their resources, initiative will be localized. We need to start the journey.

          • Proud Yoruba

            Independence, I don’t quite see how that will work. We already have 6 geographical regions. The ibos and South South are not ready for any union at all the SE have 5 states in their region and the SS has 6 states in their region.

            Ibos are not 25 to 35 percent of Lagos and they are not our partners in anyway, where is this partnership agreement? When did Yorubas agree to this partnership?

            They are not enemies, but they are not wanted either.

            Please stop saying that they contribute to the economy because that is not how it works. They are there taking up jobs that Yorubas should have and trading in markets that Yorubas should trade in. There is someone to take their space once they leave, there will be zero loss when they leave. We provide them jobs, that’s why they come, it is their civic duty to pay taxes off their income so they receive services in return. In what way are the contributing? Remember that majority of them are traders and part of the informal economy and don’t even pay taxes.

            While the ibos sit in Lagos eeking out a living, who develops their land?

          • Sanmi Falae

            I enjoy and find both of your (yourself and Lanre) debate interesting. However while one perspective borders on IDEALISM the other borders on EXTREMISM. But there is a THIRD WAY or MIDDLE GROUND. It is called PRAGMATISM. It is far much more realistic, realisable, less conflictual, and therefore evangelical. Perhaps you need to give this a very serious thought also.

          • Proud Yoruba

            What is the pragmatic way? Pay attention to what the problems are to be solved, that is, Lagos overcrowding, forcing the development of other regions, keeping people in their regions to promote more economic activity for Nigeria.

          • newnigerian1970

            Yorubaland is the most viable part of Nigeria and can become an independent country tomorrow without help from anybody.

          • Proud Yoruba

            We are not seeking independence, we just want to reduce the ibo population and force development of other regions.

          • Lemmuel Odjay

            Mr Proud (Lagosian) Yoruba, if you are honest with yourself and there is no underlying hatred for the Igbo behind your thoughts, then I agree To An Extent with you. Looking at your argument from an economic perspective, I could compare it to that of the English who are bitter at the presence of “so many people whom we invited but who have taken over our country and our jobs…” They are referring mainly to blacks and Asians in particular who “have taken over” the trade sector of their economy, even rewritten their traditions. In opposing the trend, these immigrants under series of shrewd monetary polices are made to cough up appropriate taxes and denied a few luxuries which are transferred to and enjoyed by the citizen. The result is a pacified citizenry, even though temporarily, and a huge improvement in the economy which is one of the main driving forces of every society. Each time the citizen whinges over immigration issues, which has become a recurring election issue, the government tightens the screw on immigrants, short of easing them out of the country. Were the government to have listened to the citizen’s grievances, every immigrant would have been kicked out of Britain. But Westminster demurred, preferring instead to keep the status quo and targeting certain immigrants who were not beneficial to the economic interest. Government felt that the citizen was enjoying more benefits made possible in part by the tax payer’s money, some of whom are immigrants. To do otherwise would have led to a situation where the quality or social life of the citizen would be lowered as the immigrants’ taxes that provided the luxury the citizen took for granted could be lost and this could result in an unmanageable level of social unrest. The government knew that well enough. These problems also exist in countries such as the USA, Holland, France and Greece. It would be economic suicide to throw out all the immigrant Igbo in Lagos on the basis of your argument, because for one reason the Yoruba, like the English, just may not have all the natural graces it takes to excel in enterprise as the Igbo or Asians are known to possess. This could lead to a situation where the Lagosian would be the one travelling to Onitsha or Aba to source his motor spare parts, for example. On this basis, I suggest that you adopt better ways of tackling the issue, ways that would leave both immigrant and Lagosian happy in the end since you, the Lagosian, can not eat your cake and have it.
            THIS ADVICE FOR THE IGBO. Be good enough to accept the fact that despite Lagos’ cosmopolitan characteristics, there are true Lagosians (not those from Ogun State, Osun State or elsewhere.) Be reconciled with the reality that money is not everything and that being the dominant trader in a multifaceted society does not make you better than, say, the civil servant or roadside carpenter. You have failed to learn a good lesson from one of the causes of the crisis that led to Nigeria’s avoidable civil war. It was sparked by similar complaints by those indigenous to the area in which you were domiciled. They claimed to have provided you with the peaceful environment, understanding and love necessary to enable you thrive and belong but instead you had demonstrated tendencies that could be described as domineering. If you were better, you should have remained at home to develop the area and make it equal to or even better than Lagos or Kano or Port Harcourt. The Benin, Urhobo, Esan and others were in Lagos long before you. Infact it is argued that the name Eko was derived from the Benin or Uhrobo or Esan word for “camp.” There are communities in Lagos that derived their names from the Benin language, such as Iddo, Idumota, Sango T’edo, Ijesha T’edo etc. Yet, not once has there been any rift between these tribes and Lagosians who are today the true owners of Lagos. Do yourselves a huge favour. Spend the rest of the next 8 years to lobby the incoming government to expand and refurbish the sea port of Port Harcourt which is less than 2 hours, traffic jam and all, from Aba, the industrial hub of Ariaria in Igboland. Alternatively, you could get the likes of Okorocha and Ogbonnaya Onu whose combined graces should be sufficient to carry you through the next 8 years at least, by begging them to help put pressure on the incoming Federal Government as to get the Warri sea port up and running full steam, dredge the River Niger in order to oil your Main Market at Onitsha and environ. Learn to be humble for it is a virtue you lack. Money from trading in a seller’s market is not enough…

        I’m Igbo and I can safely say we don’t hate you guys. Yorubas the people we cooperate with the most in everything – business ventures, personal friendships, marriage, everything. Most Igbos who speak an extra Nigerian language speak Yoruba, and these days, it’s becoming common to see Yorubas who speak fluent Igbo – something you won’t have seen 30 years ago. So ignore the selfish politicians and let’s get on with our lives. AC/ACN/APC has always been Lagos’ party and many Igbos are members. Ignore the traders & noise makers who have taken too many bribes from PDP and don’t know how to think or behave anymore.

        • Proud Yoruba

          Sounds like you want to keep the status quo, We can’t keep the status quo, Lagos is overcrowded and we need to take our land back.. What kind of plans are ibos making to go back to develop their own land?

    This was what the Islamist APC party did in the last council election

    falsified results. The Tribunal looked into it and seeing the APC fraud,
    reversed the result in favour of Musliu Obanikoro’s son who actually
    won the election for PDP. Stealing and rigging by APC officials is

    • Joe761

      Lily, you are far way wrong on your perceptions. Lagos was developed by the federal government with the oil money from the east. Lagos for a start is not developed!!, If you have not left Nigeria you can call lagos developed. We as a nation need to get our acts together and plan out our cities. Visit other parts of Nigeria before you make some unfounded statements. Your statements seem to justify the Niger Delta insurgents whose land has for the past 50 something years provided funds for the “development” of Lagos and other cities in nigeria. Hatred will not lead us to nothing good but will amplify our backwardness.

    The Election has been won by APC and lost by PDP.

Ndigbo says without us no Victory for APC, they have been proved wrong.
    This is no sentiment, the past week on Pages of Nigerian Newspapers Ndigbo provoked the Peaceful, Accomodating Yorubas, Ndigbo miscalculate, they want to dominate Lagos now it will be very challenging for them. Ndigbo majority are Christian but they do no live a christian way of life, what comes out of their mouth is hatred. This need to be changed.

    Among the “shithole” countries is one called Zoogeria, whose recycled British-refurbished, and inactive President always speaks through “the Presidency.” In what other modern country do herdsmen kill people like in this country?

    Nigerians can never be satiated. Before Nigerian people elected PMB president,the noise was he will clean the Augean’s table (wipe out corruption synonymous with GEJ), he’ll fight poverty, insecurity, create jobs and do everything on their wish list. PMB has been doing just that but the people of Nigeria keep complaining as if there can be a genuine reform without sacrifice and the pain that comes with such. Yes, Nigeria was zoo(to borrow Nnamdi Kanu’s word) before PMB took the leadership of Nigeria but there’s change in Nigeria. Shithole countries should do something to get better.
