Results of the just concluded elections into the 57 local governments and local council development areas of Lagos state have been condemned by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). 
The PDP accused the ruling party of electoral malpractices, claiming that all results were doctored to favour of the APC. According to the PDP, the APC resulted in ballot snatching when they realised that they were being voted out by Lagosians who are tired of them. 
The statement read: “The APC government in Lagos have realised that Lagosians don’t want them again, that was why they used thugs and guns to snat*h ballot boxes. APC is the ruling party; if not for the fact that they saw that they were getting voted out, what was the need for the use of thugs to snat*h ballot boxes? “Most ballot boxes were not counted at the unit, even those that were counted, the ballot boxes were taken to collation centres where no other party agents were allowed to enter except APC agents.

“That is where all the results were doctored and votes were allocated to political parties for the returning officers to declare. This is how APC rigged every other party out of the election.” Reacting however, APC described PDP as a group of confused people. According to the state publicity secretary of the party Mr Joe Igbokwe, the PDP statement is a show of political irresponsibility. 
“Lagos PDP should just keep quiet and go home to find out where the rains started beating them. The struggle for the position of the National Chairman of the party by the two factions of the party led by Ali Modu Sherrif and Ahmed Markafi dealt a devastating and debilitating blow to Lagos PDP which split along Markafi and Sherrif political divides. “When the Supreme Court handed over to Markafi faction, the bubble burst as the Falcon could not bear the falconer and the centre could no longer hold for Lagos PDP.
“The leadership of APC Lagos traversed the political landscape of Lagos in the course of our grassroots and door-to-door campaigns just to check whether the opposition is doing anything in terms of campaigns but we did not see PDP/LP (Labour Party) in action,” Igbokwe said.
