The Plateau State Governor and Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong, lost his polling unit to the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Mr Lalong voted at Polling Unit 015, Kurumbo ward B of Shendam Local Government Area of Plateau State.
The unit is located at the LEA primary school in the area.
After the counting of votes Saturday evening, Sowan Paul, the INEC presiding officer in the unit, declared that LP scored 104 votes, APC scored 88 votes and PDP scored 8 votes in the presidential election.
A possible indication that voters preferred Peter Obi in the unit and not necessarily the Labour Party was reflected in the National Assembly elections.
The APC won in both the senatorial and House of Representatives election in the unit. Mr Lalong is the senatorial candidate of the APC in the district.
