The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, TOKUNBO ABIRU as the winner of Saturday’s Lagos East senatorial bye-election.

The commission said ABIRU polled eighty-nine thousand two hundred and four votes to defeat his closest rival, BABATUNDE GBADAMOSI of the Peoples Democratic Party, who scored eleven point two hundred and fifty-seven votes.

It said ABIRU won in all the five local government areas in the senatorial district.

Candidates from twelve political parties are contesting in the Lagos East Senatorial bye-elections while eight candidates are contesting the Kosofe Constituency eleven, Lagos State House of Assembly bye-elections.

The senatorial seat became vacant following the death of Senator BAYO OSHINOWO earlier this year.
