April 11th, Hot Tussle Btw APC Vs PDP In Lagos State Gubernatorial Who WINS ? by produce(m): 10:19pm On Apr 08, 2015
Who will emerge as the winner of the 2015 Lagos State Governorship Elections?

While many still bask in the euphoria of the recently concluded Presidential Elections, won by General Muhammadu Buahri of course, in less than a week,
millions of Nigerians will again elect our leaders at the state level. Out of the 36 states in Nigeria, Lagos state is one of the most important states in Nigeria, infact Lagos is widely regarded as the Commercial/Economic heartbeat of the nation, with a population of over 18 million people.

Enough respect to all the political parties contesting, but from all indications, the race for the Alausa Round House will be a straight fight between PDP’s Jimi Agbaje
and APC’s Akinwumi Ambode.

The then AD, later AC, ACN and
now APC has been in power in
Lagos state since 1999, meaning,
Lagos state is one state PDP has
never won, and in this years polls,
PDP presents a very strong
candidate, Jimi Agbaje, who is no
new comer to Lagos politics, as he
has tried to get into the seat of
power in Alausa.

In 2007, following his failure to
clinch the gubernatorial ticket of
the then Action Congress (AC)
following the anointment of
Babatunde Fashola by former
governor Bola Tinubu, he defected
to the Democratic Peoples Alliance
(DPA) where he flew the party’s
flag in the 2007 Governorship
election in Lagos state. DPA
obviously being a weaker platform
and with his face conspicuously
missing on the ballot he came a
distant 3rd behind Fashola of the
AC backed by the incumbent at
that time Bola Tinubu and Musiliu
Obanikoro who was heavily backed
by the federal forces of the PDP.
Jimi Agbaje will be coming up
against All Progressives Congress
(APC) candidate, Akinwumi
Ambode who aims to take over
from the arguably one of the best
governors in the country,
Babatunde Fashola.
Recently, 10 candidates withdrew
from the Lagos governorship race
and called on their supporters to
vote for the candidate of the All
Progressives Congress, Akinwunmi

The ten candidate who
relinquished their gubernatorial
ambitions are candidate Accord
Party, Adeshina Buruji;
Independent Democrats, Obadia
Akinola; Action Alliance, Ishola
Aregbesola; and Allied Congress
Party of Nigeria, Babatunde
