According to him, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi allegedly took advantage of the situation by going from church to church to tell christians to take their country back. He added that some churches allegedly persuaded their members not to vote for the same ticket and it really worked against the ruling party.

"We were not surprised by the hurricane that swept our expected, normal electoral fortunes in Lagos state two weeks. We have recognized the factors that accounted for the low performance. First, our children are still swatting from the event of EndSars."

"The Muslim Muslim ticket thing made Peter Obi to ride on the religious factor, he wanted to ride on it to power, hopping from church to another telling them to take their country back as if though the country belonged to the Christians and somebody took it from them."

"The Christians started feeling that they must vote out the Muslim Muslim ticket. That worked against us. Some churches actually came very hard on their members, telling them not to vote for the ticket."
