Former Governor of Lagos State and Minister of Works, Housing and Power, Babatunde Raji Fashola, has technically dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, by not voting in the last Saturday, Local Government elections, in Lagos State.
This came as the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, voted at his Polling Unit 047, on Sunday, at Adigun Street, Alausa, Ikeja, while Governor Ambode, voted at his polling unit in Epe.
The first Civilian Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande, also voted, defying the rain.
However, it was gathered that Reporters and residents around Ward G3, Unit 002, State Senior Grammer School, Itolo, where Fashola normally casts his vote, waited endlessly for him to vote, but he did not show up, till voting and counting ended.
All effort to reach his Media Spokesman, Hakeem Bello, to react to Fashola’s refusal to vote, proved abortive.
Fashola, also was not visible ahead of the elections, to mobilise his Constituents to vote for the APC, as was the case when he served as Lagos State Governor.
The Minister, has further stayed away from Lagos politics, and official gatherings, since his tenure ended in 2015.
