Lagos East Bye-Election: ‘I Was Rigged Out’ – Gbadamosi



Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the Lagos East Senatorial District bye election, Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi has condemned the results released so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission in the Saturday exercise, describing it as “manipulated”.

So far, results published by INEC shows that Tokunbo Abiru of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is in early lead. He is closely followed by Babatunde Gbadamosi of the opposition party.

According to Vanguard, the PDP candidate said he was rigged out, saying;

The election was manipulated and I was clearly rigged out.

In reaction to BOG’s claim, the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APÇ, in Lagos, Mr Seye Oladejo, expressed;

We’re not surprised by Gbadamosi’s reaction to the results of an election that’s yet to be officially declared because he’s so predictable

However, we acknowledge feelers from our agents who have reported overwhelming victory for Tokunbo Abiru.

He stated;

We can only emphatize with a serial contestant with a consistent record of monumental failure and rejection at the poll. The results as they trickle in have put a lie to his propaganda and fictitious opinion poll.

The electorate in the Lagos East Senatorial have spoken loudly and decisively. The allegation of rigging is especially laughable with his loss in his ancestral home. Hopefully, he can be rehabilitated politically to resuscitate his still-born political misadventure.
