The All Progressives Congress (APC) has described as laughable the claims by Babatunde Gbadamosi, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that Saturday’s bye election for Lagos East senatorial district was rigged in favour of Tokunbo Abiru.
Reacting to Gbadamosi’s claim, Seye Oladejo, the APC’s Publicity Secretary said the outcome of the election has put a lie to the fictitious opinion poll by the PDP which predicted victory for Gbadamosi.
According to him, it is not surprised at the PDP candidate’s outburst having lost massively to APC in his ancestral hometown.
While expressing confidence that Abiru will emerge victorious, he said the APC will help in resuscitating Gbadamosi’s political career
He said “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”.
“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 electorates 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. This has indeed been a BYE-ELECTION for candidate Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi”
