The gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Lagos State, Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran, has given reasons why he couldn’t deliver the state for Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate in the just concluded February 25 election.

Adediran disclosed this on Wednesday while featuring on Arise Television’s Morning Show program.

Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, said religion and ethnicity played a part in why Atiku could not win the state.

He said, “A lot of people don’t really understand this game, that’s why you see the people that are jumping about thinking they have a wave that they can ride on. They did a whole lot of mistakes and they will get the results in this election. I have taken my time to analyze this.

“First, that election was on religion, ethnicity and the likes. And in Lagos, we have a supposed Lagosian who also is on the ballot. If you look at the election you will see that the guy won in all indigenous Local Governments in Lagos, Epe, Badagry, and Ikorodu. That’s because they decided to say he is our own; let’s do that.

Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, yesterday, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is getting stronger in the South East notwithstanding the string of successes recorded by the opposition, including Labour Party (LP) in recent presidential and National Assembly elections in the region.

Umahi spoke to journalists after he emerged from a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor, who emerged Senator-elect in February 25 National Assembly election to represent Ebonyi South Senatorial District, noted that APC recorded significant successes in the state, because of the strength of the party.

He also noted that Labour Party has no governorship candidate in the Saturday’s governorship election in the state, stressing that APC would have still won the election even if the Labour Party has a candidate, considering the quality of candidate APC fielded.
