Report on LP performance at Gbajabiamila’s polling unit, false

CLAIM: An APC supporter with the Twitter username @DOlusegun claimed TheCable’s report on LP performance at Gbajabiamila’s polling unit is false.

FINDING: Our findings showed that the result uploaded by TheCable Newspaper is for the presidential election in which the Labour Party polled 89 as against the APC’s 69. A journalist affiliated with the Center for Journalism Innovation and Development confirmed this to the NFC.

The social media user confused it with the result of the Senatorial election, where the APC topped the chart.
