In the poll result released by Mega City Foundation, the APC and its candidate were projected to be leading by as much as 82 percent in terms of voters’ support.
Agbaje was credited with 14 percent of the votes according to the polling report made available to the press.
According to the study, Akinwunmi Ambode, is the candidate of choice by Lagos voters with a 82 percent lead over other candidates.
This is a clear indication that the choice of Lagos voters in the next governorship race is Akinwunmi Ambode. Agbaje of the PDP comes a far distant second, polling 14 percent representing a two percent decline from the earlier survey.
