The All Progressives Congress (APC) has made a significant comeback in Lagos State following their loss to the Labour Party in the presidential election. The APC has won the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections with a comfortable victory, signaling a shift in the political landscape of the state.
Mr. Sunday Abiodun Orekoya, the APC candidate, has been declared the lawmaker-elect for the Somolu Constituency 1 seat of the House of Assembly. The INEC Returning Officer for the constituency, Dr. Waziri Adisa, declared him the winner at the collation center in Somolu at 4:50 am.
Hon. Abiodun won the election with 14,256 votes, while the LP candidate, Mr. Adelana Adesegun-Adewale, came in second with 4,865 votes. The victory comes as a result of APC’s efforts to reorganize and galvanize their supporters after their loss in the previous election. The party’s campaign promises, including job creation and infrastructure development, resonated with the people of Lagos State.
Dr. Adisa announced Hon. Abiodun as the winner and returned him elected. The APC’s victory is a significant milestone in the democratic process of Nigeria, as it shows that political parties can make a comeback and win the trust of the people again.
As the APC takes control of the state’s leadership, it is important for them to prioritize the welfare of the citizens and fulfill their campaign promises. We congratulate the APC and Hon. Abiodun on their victory and hope that they will lead Lagos State towards progress and development.
