The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) , Bola Tinubu, has appealed to Lagos residents to avoid any act of violence as the results of the presidential election trickle in.
Report has it that that Peter Obi, candidate of the Labour Party (LP), polled 582,664, while Tinubu scored 541,850 and was declared the winner in Lagos State.
In a statement released hours after Obi was announced winner, Tinubu asked that the outcome of the election should not be a source of provocation.
He said, “The fact that the APC narrowly lost Lagos State to another party should not be the reason for violence. As a democrat, you win some, you lose some. We must allow the process to continue unhindered across the country while we maintain peace and decorum.”
