The Eti-Osa Federal Constituency seat in the House of Representatives has been awarded to Mr. Thaddeus Attah of the Labour Party, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The announcement was made on Sunday at the Collation Center of the Lagos State Model Nursery and Primary School in Marwa, Lekki 1. Prof Funmilayo Odukoya, the INEC Returning Officer.

With 24,075 votes, Attah defeated PDP candidate Mr. Olubankole Wellington (Banky W), who received 18,666 votes, and APC candidate Mr. Babajide Obanikoro, who received 16,901 votes.

She claimed that Mr. Oladehin Olufemi, of the African Democratic Congress, received 1,422 votes; Mr. Azeez Kabirat, of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, obtained 414 votes; and Mr. Olasunkanmi Ololade, of the Social Democratic Party, received 207 votes.

Before the presiding officer announced the results, there was chaos between the party agents and INEC officers regarding the validity of the outcome.

APC and PDP were among the agents that objected to the announcement of the results until their grievances were resolved.

The PDP agent, Mr. Aderemi Adeshina, stated that certain voters were denied the right to vote in various polling places in the LGA in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

Adeshina further asserted that some units’ post-election results were not relayed via the BVAS system.

“Unless another election is held in every ward where we were disenfranchised, we will not recognize the result,” he declared.

According to NAN, there were security personnel on the ground, including the police and army, to ensure and uphold security and tranquility.
