Confusion reigns in the APC governorship primary scheduled to hold in Lagos state on Tuesday.  The panel appointed by the party's National Working Committee arrived the state on Monday evening, signaling that the election will hold as intended.

But by Tuesday afternoon, the panel says, voting is yet to commence, after election was completed at different wards over two hours ago. 

According to the panel, the primary couldn't have been carried out when electoral materials meant for the exercise are yet to be distributed. 

As at the time of filing this reports, journalists are laying siege at the Protea Hotel, Alausa, where the panel is operating from, waiting for officials statement on what next from the panel. Supporters of the two aspirants are also locking around in their numbers.

Earlier today, after participating in the now discredited primary, National leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, said the exercise marks democracy day for the state as members of the party had the unhindered chance to determine who will fly the flag of the APC during next year's governorship election. 

Reports from Epe, where Gov. Ambode was meant to vote, is not clear on whether or not the governor participated. 

Early results published on the social media suggest that Gov Ambode's rival in the contest, Jide Sanwoolu, may be on his way to victory as he was recorded with higher number of votes against his opponent, from the wards made public.
