Nigeria Decides: Labour Party Loses Obasanjo’s Polling Unit to APC

The former president couldn’t sway votes in his home base for the candidate he has publicly endorsed.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has failed to deliver his polling unit for his preferred presidential candidate, Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
After counting the valid votes in the Ward 11, Unit 22, Abeokuta North Local Government where Obasanjo voted, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, defeated Obi with 56 votes, while the LP candidate had only nine votes.

Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored only seven votes, while the African Democratic Congress (ADC) scored eight votes. A total of 10 votes were voided in the unit.
In a twist to the results at the polling unit, the PDP scored 31 votes, while the APC scored 37 votes for the Senate.

Obi’s Labour Party only scored one vote for the Senate.
