Presidential Election: Why Peter Obi Won Lagos – Dele Momodu
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dele Momodu, has explained why Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) won in Lagos State in the just concluded presidential election.
Momodu said Obi won because of the “preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos”.
He disclosed this while appearing on Channels Television program on Thursday.
The PDP Chieftain said the ethnic factor played out in favour of Obi because there were enough Igbo people in Lagos.
“What transpired last Saturday, the major factor was ethnic: the Labour Party was able to take over the APC behemoth because of the preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos. They are everywhere.
“Obi started in the East. He had his base intact. Atiku had his base intact in the Northeast and the North-West. The only person who could not hold his base was Bola Tinubu and now you are telling me that a man who could not hold his base is the champion in the North?” he queried.
“Last Saturday was another sad day for our country.”
“A faulty process cannot give birth to a perfect process. The Electoral Act was not obeyed. So, whosoever won last Saturday cannot lay claim to legitimacy. That process gave birth to the hullabaloo that we have now,” Momodu stated.
