Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo suffered a defeat in Nigeria’s election as his anointed presidential candidate, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, lost at his polling unit to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Although Obasanjo had endorsed Obi, he did not actively campaign for him. Despite this, the Labour Party received only 9 votes at Unit 22, Ward 11, Olusomi compound in Abeokuta North, while the APC received 56 votes and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) received 7 votes.

Out of 693 registered voters, only 91 turned out to vote, with 10 ballot papers voided. In the senatorial election at the same polling unit, the PDP received 31 votes, the APC received 37 votes, the Action Democratic Party (ADP) received 1 vote, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) received 7 votes, the Labour Party received 4 votes, and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) received 2 votes.

Former President Obasanjo commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the introduction of the Biometric Verification Accreditation System (BVAS), which he said had improved the electoral process.

The loss of his polling unit to the APC is considered a setback for Obasanjo, who remains a prominent figure in Nigerian politics.
