Dele Momodu has described Peter Obi’s victory in Lagos over the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a “preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos.”
The Labour Party finished ahead of the APC in their own stronghold, and Momodu has claimed that the victory stems from the fact that the Igbos are everywhere.
The PDP spokesperson said on Channels TV: “What transpired last Saturday, the major factor was ethnic: the Labour Party was able to take over the APC behemoth because of the preponderance of the Igbo people in Lagos. They are everywhere.”
Momodu also added both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate and Obi held their respective geopolitical zones but the APC’s Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu could not hold his base in Lagos.
The campaigner for the PDP presidential candidate added: “A faulty process cannot give birth to a perfect process. The Electoral Act was not obeyed. So, whosoever won last Saturday cannot lay claim to legitimacy. That process gave birth to the hullabaloo that we have now.”
