LAGOS State Governor, Babajide SANWO-OLU on Monday morning, March 20, 2023 was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and reelected as the Governor of Lagos State for his Second Term.




SANWO-OLU scored 762,134 votes to defeat his closest rival, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of the Labour Party who scored 312,329 votes, followed by Abdul-Azeez Adediran aka Jandor with 62,449 votes.




INEC announced the results at the Commission’s State Collation Centre, but not without the LP collation agent condemning the exercise.

The election was marked by voter suppression, ethnic discrimination, political thuggery, and physical attacks on voters, electoral staff and security personnel alike.




Amid the reports, State Commissioner of Police Idowu Owohunwa had assured Lagosians that security personnel deployed for the election were responding promptly to the cases, saying “a lot of arrests” and “recoveries” had been made.

“To all of our fellow contestants, we want to salute you for participating in the democratic process, but Lagosians have spoken and have spoken well. They have spoken loud.,” he said.




“Please remember that we’re extending a hand of fellowship to you, no victor, no vanquished. In the true spirit of sportsmanship, if you indeed believe that you want to serve this state, you have an opportunity with us and we will open our doors to listen and to give you a space in this government.”




He also spoke out against the identity politics that became commonplace in the lead-up to the polls last Saturday.



“During this campaign, unfortunately, we have seen very divisive rhetoric which is not a definition of who we are,” he said.



“So, Lagosians, we need to come together and further rebuild the capacity, the competence, and the experience that we have in this city. Religion should not divide us, ethnicity will not divide us. Lagos will come out bigger, stronger, and better.”
