Even though unofficial tally of results suggests he has lost the race for the governorship of Lagos to his main challenger, Akinwunmi Ambode of the All Progressives Party, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the election, Jimi Agbaje, has sent a message to his supporters saying the contest remained very much alive.

In a message he posted to his official Facebook Page about two hours ago, Mr. Agbaje said he was following the collation of results from across the state and remained confident of victory.

He said reports suggesting he had lost were unofficial and should be discountenanced.

Mr. Agbaje said, “Lagosians I want to thank you for coming out yesterday to exercise your right to vote.

” I want to assure you that we are currently monitoring the vote counting process, so please do not believe the various unofficial numbers that are being shared across the internet.

“An official announcement will be made at the appropriate time when all numbers are in.

“Continue to remain resolute, and again, thank you for your continued support.”

There have been widespread celebration in the camp of the APC after collations from local government areas suggested Mr. Ambode had defeated Mr. Agbaje.

The Independent National Electoral Commission is however yet to release an official result of the election

    For JK to be saying it is not over at this hour when even very young children with smartphones around the world know IT IS OVER says a lot about how delusional and out of touch with reality he sadly is. It speaks volumes about the oft repeated claims that he was not and probably will never be ready to govern a State as socially,economically and politically sophisticated as Lagos. His decision making is very questionable and same goes for his capacity to evaluate current realities vis a vis his vaulting ambition. Truly he was clearly Just Kidding with Lagos. I dare say IT IS GOOD RIDDANCE to all the seriously bad RUBBISH he was going to flood Lagos with.

    Mr Jimi Agbaje forgot that every Party and their agents are at all levels from polling units to wards,then to local govt areas before state collation centre and they has been following the results.i am surprised when i read “the game is not over”.Jimi let the spirit of sportsmanship to come to play and congratulate Ambode ,the Lagos State governor-elect, so we can move on with the spirit of Lagos.After all you know you cann’t win Lagos from the unset.

    I really don’t know what happened to JK, he does not even look like the same person. I guess this is what happens when you start hanging out with the wrong kind of people, please go back to being yourself.

    Do not concede anything yet. Just stay put as I smell a rat in all these false APC wins. Something is not adding up here. GEJ sweeps the SE and SS they cry rigging, but when MB sweeps the North is is kosher.Bullshit , really. Bullshit.
