In Lagos, four aspirants are awaiting the result of the Lagos central All Progressive Congress (APC) senatorial primary election that held on Saturday in the state.
Recall that Oluremi Tinubu who currently holds the position has shown no interest in re-contesting the Lagos central senatorial seat after being on seat for 3 terms.
The four aspirants jostling for the APC Lagos central senatorial ticket are Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, the Deputy Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Demola Seriki, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain, Oyinlomo Danmole, a former commissioner, and Akeem Apatira.
Voting began at the primaries, amidst tight security under the watch of officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission at 2:45 p.m., after completing the accreditation of 310 ad hoc delegates.
In his remarks before the commencement of the exercise, Tolani Sule, the chairman of the five-person Electoral Committee/ Returning Officer, said that 308 ad hoc delegates were accredited out of 310 ad hoc delegates expected.
“308 delegates will be participating in this election. For us to be fast, we will be calling delegates from one local government to another local government,” Mr Sule posited.
