Musiliu Obanikoro, an aspirant at the Lagos PDP gubernatorial primaries, has described the election as a “complete sham.”
Mr.Obanikoro polled 343 votes to emerge runners up in the ill-tempered primaries in which Jimi Agbaje won with 432 votes.The former Minister of State said that the “electoral fraud” was condemnable and he would fight the result of the polls.
Trouble started at the venue of the primaries after Seidu Kumo, a former Senator and chairman of the electoral committee, announced 863 as the total votes cast. Before delegates began voting, the committee had announced 806 as the number of accredited delegates.
Mr.Obanikoro said, “I still can’t comprehend how accredited delegates of 806 rose to 867. With the benefit of hindsight now, you could tell it was a predetermined situation.”Obanikoro
