However, in a statement released hours after Obi was announced winner, Tinubu asked that the outcome of the election should not be a source of provocation.

“The fact that the APC narrowly lost Lagos State to another party should not be the reason for violence. As a democrat, you win some, you lose some. We must allow the process to continue unhindered across the country while we maintain peace and decorum,” the statement said.
