The state collation center in the Yaba neighborhood of the state opened its doors to the public on Sunday, and the collation continued there until midnight on Monday.

The results for 17 of the state’s 20 LGAs presented by 3:40 am on Monday including Lagos Mainland, Ikorodu, Epe, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Island, Badagry, Agege, Ikeja, Shomolu, Kosofe, Amuwo Odofin, Eti Osa, Surulere, Apapa, Ifako Ijaiye, Ajeromi, Oshodi Isolo.

Results presented for Mushin LGA have yet to get cleared by the state collation officer as they are being contested by the Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) and thus had yet to be signed by most party agents.
INEC asked that they be presented afresh.

Only Ojo and Alimosho LGAs remain to be announced in the meantime. Later on Monday, the state’s REC is anticipated to meet again to compile the final results.

Lagos collected 6,214,970 PVCs out of the 87,209,007 PVCs that were collected nationwide for the election. Kano, with 5,594,193, and Kaduna, with 4,164,473, follow closely behind.
