Mr. Mojeed fatai, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the Ibeju-Lekki Constituency I of Lagos State, has been declared winner of the rerun held on Saturday.
Prof Rasheed Ojikutu, the Returning Officer of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the exercise, declared Fatai the winner of the exercise having secured 9,484 votes to defeat his rival of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tari Oliver, who got 1,901 votes.
Ojikutu stated that out of a total of 122,442 registered voters, only 12,245 were accredited for the exercise.
The exercise was said to have witnessed low turnout as voters came out in few numbers to the nine polling units where the elections held.
The INEC had declared the election inconclusive as a result of over-voting in nine polling units covering two registration areas of the constituency.
