The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the All Progressives Congress candidate, Mr Kolawole Taiwo, winner of Ajeromi-Ifelodun Federal Constituency election.
INEC conducted the supplementary election in 71 polling units across eight wards of Ajeromi-Ifelodun Federal Constituency of Lagos State for the House of Representatives seat.
It will be recalled that the commission had earlier declared the Feb. 23 House of Representatives election in the constituency, inconclusive due to over-voting, non-compliance with the usage of smart card readers and violence.

Prof. Olusoji Ilori the Returning Officer for the election, announced the result for the election at the INEC Collation Centre located at Local Authority Primary School, Baale St. Ajegunle at about 7:35 p.m.
Ilori, who is a lecturer at the University of Lagos, announced the total votes after the successful conclusion of the supplementary poll.
According to him, Taiwo polled a total of 36,115 votes to defeat his closest rival from the Peoples Democratic Party Mrs Rita Orji, who got 32,557 votes.
