According to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, his political mentor, Bola Tinubu, lost the February 25 presidential election in the state due to several factors, including the use of a Muslim-Muslim ticket, the sentiment towards an Igbo presidency, and internal conflicts within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
During an interview with Arise TV, the Governor of Lagos expressed himself by stating: “We have been able to identify and look critically about what went wrong.
The Muslim-Muslim ticket played a role because Lagos is also centre of a lot of Christian population and we had the information. So it’s there.”
“The other reason is that, some people said that from their own ethnic nationality, this is the first time that they are having their son on the ballot, so ‘na my pikin’, so we cannot force anybody. That’s the beauty of democracy.”
“The third reason is that we ourselves have our own internal wrangling that we were not able to resolve fully before we went into the election.”
