Presidential Election: Speaker Obasa Votes, Expresses Hope In APC’s Victory


The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has described the voting process in the presidential election as peaceful so far.


Dr. Obasa, who represents Agege Constituency 1 at the Lagos Assembly, said this just after voting at his Unit 019, Ward E, Oluwole Olaniyan Street, Agege, expressing hope that his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, would be victorious at the end of the exercise.


“So far, so good, everything is going smoothly. Everything is going well,” he said just as he further expressed optimism that more of the electorate would come out to vote before the close of the exercise.


He said he did not have issues with BVAS used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), but said it was too early to give an overall assessment of the process since the election was still ongoing.

Meanwhile, Dr. Joe Okey-Odumakin, who led a team of election observers to the Speaker’s polling unit, confirmed that Lagos had been peaceful and that the security agencies have displayed high level of professionalism.
