2017 CHAIRMANSHIP RESULTS: ELECTORATES REJECT ELECTION RESULT IN AGEGE


Sequel to the Lagos chairmanship election results that were announced on Saturday 22 July 2017, and the results were announced barely hours after, several electorates in Agege area of the state have demanded the cancellation of the election due to alleged rigging from the favourite party,  APC.

Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission, LASIEC, officials through Abubakar Y. K, the Electoral Officer to Agege Local Government colluded with honourable Mudashir Obasa, Gbenga Abiola and Saheed Egbeyemi to collate votes in the night to perfect the nefarious act.

Abubakar Y. K rigged the polls in favour of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). He sold 1200 out of Ward E, ballot paper for the sole administrator of Agege, Gbenga Abiola through the PSO to Ward E and also 4700 of the Electoral material of Ward F., In short, there is no election in Ward F at all but despite all these intimidations,  Agege residents voted for accord.

There was undue pressure on Lasiec officials by the Electoral Officers to favour the APC candidate.

Agege Local Government electoral officials deliberately delayed distribution of results of election materials till around 2:30 pm in Ward F and G and the results of Ward A and D were tampered with under the cloak of darkness.

Agege Local Government election has brought in new innovations to the rigging of elections. The Lasiec Chairman made the election to appear very nice during voting and all that but when it concerns collating, Obasa with Saheed Egbeyemi move in with about 1000 Task Force with a heavy weapon to snatched Chairmanship election results and materials of Ward C and Ward A.

We hereby call for the outright cancellation of the Agege Council election because the results were not at all a reflection of the voting pattern.

Agege Local Government electorates demand an immediate cancellation of the election because such charade exercise has already put the peace and unity of the state in jeopardy by a partisan and compromised Lasiec does not in any way reflect the wishes of the people of the state.
