The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State on Saturday expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the Lagos East senatorial by-election.
The party dismissed the allegation of electoral fraud by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Babatunde Gbadamosi, as unfounded.
The APC Publicity Secretary, Seye Oladejo, said in statement that the exercise was not manipulated, adding that the electorate exercised their freedom of choice.
Taking exception to Gbadamosi’s claim, Oladejo 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.
“We can only empathise 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 District have spoken loudly and decisively.”
He added:”The allegation of rigging is especially laughable with his loss in his ancestral home.
