Spokesman of the PDP/Labour Party alliance, Taofik Gani, as well as the Labour Party (LP) Chairman, Pastor Biodun Popoola, called for outright cancellation of the exercise, saying, “It was marred by irregularities and snatching of ballot boxes by hoodlums working for the APC.
In a similar vein, Popoola alleged that, “LASIEC has failed as the election can never reflect the desires of the electorate.” But Lagos APC Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe commended the security situation during the exercise particularly in some flashpoints like Odi Olowo, Orile Agege, Amuwo Odofin, Orile Agege, Mushin and so on.
Labour Party candidate for Ijaiye Ojokoro, Prince Adefarati Olatunbosun said, “the election is peaceful. The conduct is peaceful. There have not been reports of fracas. But we are still waiting to see the end of the election before we can place a verdict on the entire process.”
“If PDP were settled perhaps we will not be able to get all the local governments we got but when you look at 2011 we took everything too so it is magic.
“We as a party are up to the task, we monitor the fulfillment of our promises and also give them plaques and awards to buoy the performance”, He added .
