Protests as Jimi Agbaje Wins PDP Gubernatorial Ticket for Lagos, Obanikoro calls the election a sham

Jimi Agbaje was on Monday night declared the winner of the Lagos PDP governorship primaries in Lagos amid protests.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the protests followed a difference in the number of delegates that voted and the number of votes cast.

The Chairman of the PDP Governorship Committee for Lagos State, Senator Umar Kumo, announced 863 as the number of votes cast as against 806 delegates that voted, sparking protests.
Attempts by some of the supporters of
the other aspirants to stop the vote count and cancel the primaries
were, however, unsuccessful.
Senator Musliu Obanikoro, an aspirant, walked out of the venue when the committee was unable to explain the difference in numbers.
Announcing Agbaje as the winner, Kumo said he had 432 votes to clinch the ticket, while Obanikoro had 343 votes.
NAN reports that the only female aspirant in the contest, Modupe Chukwuneke stepped down shortly before the voting started.
Among the other aspirants, Adedeji Doherty got 21 votes, Tokumboh Kamson had 46 and Babatunde Gbadamosi, 21 votes.
Speaking with newsmen, Agbaje promised to carry all the aspirants along.
He also commended the committee over the conduct of the elections.
However, Obanikoro told newsmen later that he would appeal the outcome of the election, which he described as a sham.
He said that the difference in the number of delegates and the votes cast must be explained.
The aspirant alleged that the result was predetermined and called for its cancellation.
Gbadamosi, another aspirant, also said the election was a sham.

Some fans though!

So last night, pop star, Davido tweeted about Nigeria’s Tayo being cheated out of the number 1 spot by Big Brother Africa, saying "And they cheat again"…recall that he lost out of the five awards he was nominated for in the channel o awards weeks ago….and the organisers of the channel o awards are the organisers of the BBA too…you understand yea?
Following the tweet, some Tanzanians took to twitter to swear at him.
