Oladiji said the governor cleared 19 out of the 20 local government areas of the state.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Lagos, Mrs Dayo Ekong, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to cancel outrightly, the Governorship and House of Assembly elections conducted on March 18, in Lagos over electoral malpractices, and irregularities.
Ekong, raised the opposition against the exercise after the Returning Officer of Eti-Osa Local Government presented the results of the rescheduled elections in 10 units.
The Labour Party chairman, who described the exercise as “a sham”, claimed that a lot of their supporters were killed and disenfranchised amid electoral malpractices across the state during the exercise.
