The social media frenzy of some demographic over the results of Lagos Presidential election is short-lived as results across the wards and local government areas of Lagos, the state with the highest voting population in Nigeria, continue to come in.
A few people ran to social media to celebrate the outcome of some selected polling units that favoured their chosen presidential candidate, however, in reality, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has won up to 80% of the polling units announced so far.
According to official figures, Lagos has over 13,000 polling units across the 20 local governments of the state. It’s apparent that the polling units results being circulated on social media are less than 20 which don’t reflect the overall performance of all candidates in the state.
From results of about 9,200 polling units gathered so far, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of APC, cleared all the 20 local governments and about 90% of the total wards in the state.
At the end of the collation, APC is expected to win the state with at least 300,000 votes and all APC’s National Assembly candidate in the state will emerge.
