    A total of 12 votes were annulled out of 1,198 votes cast.

    Although three contestants were in the race, only Sanwo-Olu was screened and cleared by the party’s screening committee and Appeal Committee in Abuja, according to Yuguda, who made the clarification before announcing the result.

    The other two aspirants that were not cleared are a former commissioner, Wale Oluwo, and a former permanent secretary, Abdul-Ahmed Mustapha.
