The cancellation nullified the primaries that was ongoing earlier today in the State.
Reports had it that Mr Babajide Sanwoolu was leading by a wide margin ahead of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
Mr Sanwoolu is the preferred candidate of the APC party leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The cancellation reveals the fact that the National and Lagos state organs of the party, are in clear disagreement in the process for conducting the primaries.
