Nigerian election results trickle in as Peter Obi lands surprise win in Lagos
Nigeria’s third force candidate Peter Obi has won Lagos State, according to results announced from the state’s collation center.
Obi’s win comes as a surprise as the state is a stronghold of ruling APC party candidate Bola Tinubu, who was expected to easily win the state.
Tinubu is a former governor of Lagos State and is known as an influential political godfather there.
Obi, who is 61 years old, has gained in popularity among young people in particular, many who call themselves ‘Obidients.’
