INEC suspended further collation of the governorship election results pending a review of the process of the contentious balloting in parts of the two states to help resolve the dispute between the Labour Party and the PDP in some local governments.

On Sunday, INEC declared Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo, PDP) Dapo Abiodun (Ogun, APC), Muhammadu Yahaya (Gombe, APC), Babatunde Sanwo-Olu (Lagos, APC), Mai Mala Buni (Yobe, APC) and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq (Kwara, APC) the winners of the governorship election.
