Lagos Senator Wins APC Primary In Ogun

The Senator Representing Lagos West, Senator Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, has won the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket of Ogun West Senatorial district for the 2023 elections.

Adeola popularly known as Yayi polled 294 votes to defeat his main rival and incumbent Senator representing the zone, Tolu Odebiyi, who scored zero.

He won at Senatorial primaries held at Orona Hall, Ilaro, the Headquarters of Yewa South Local Government Area of the State.

Adeola recently relocated to the state and joined Ogun West Senate race, in a sweeping movement tagged “West2West Agenda.”

The primaries was conducted by APC Senatorial electoral committee led by Dr Dapo Odukoya.

Earlier, Odebiyi said he was the only aspirant vying for the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket in the ongoing party’s primaries for the zone.

Odebiyi, an ally of former Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, said he remains the only aspirant in the primaries, describing Adeola as a “visitor”in the exercise.

He noted that each of the two other aspirants – Hon. Abiodun Isiaq Akinlade and three – time governorship candidate in the state, Prince Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka (GNI) had stepped down days earlier to take up House of Representatives tickets respectively.

He said: “I am extremely delighted that finally, we are having an opportunity to handle our primaries and more importantly, I am also excited for the people of Ogun West.

As far as I am concerned, I am the only candidate from Ogun West and at the end of the day, I believe I am going to triumph.”
