Lagos Senator Wins APC Primary In Ogun

Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, a Lagos West Senator, has been elected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for the Ogun West Senatorial District in the 2023 elections.

Adeola, also known as Yayi, received 294 votes, defeating Tolu Odebiyi, the zone’s incumbent Senator, who received 0 votes.

Senatorial primaries were conducted at Orona Hall, Ilaro, the headquarters of the State’s Yewa South Local Government Area.

In a broad movement dubbed “West2West Agenda,” the Lagos West Senator recently relocated to the state and entered the Ogun West Senate election.

The APC Senatorial Electoral Committee, directed by Dr. Dapo Odukoya, conducted the primaries.

Odebiyi had previously stated that he was the only candidate vying for the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket in the zone’s ongoing party primary.

Odebiyi, a supporter of former Governor Ibikunle Amosun, arrived at the primary site around 12:48 p.m. with a group of supporters.

Odebiyi told reporters that he is still the only candidate in the primaries.

He referred to his counterpart from Lagos West as a “visitor” in the exercise.

He pointed out that the other two candidates, Hon. Abiodun Isiaq Akinlade and Prince Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka (GNI), both three-time governorship candidates in the state, had stepped down days earlier to run for House of Representatives seats.

“I am ecstatic that we are finally getting a chance to manage our primaries, and more importantly, I am excited for the people of Ogun West,” he added.

“At this moment in time, I don’t believe I have any opponents.” For Ogun West, I am the lone candidate.

“My two other brothers from Ogun West, Isiaka Abiodun Akinlade and Gboyega Nasiru Isiaka, have accepted via for House of Rep seats.”

“I am the only candidate from Ogun West, as far as I am concerned.” Yes, we do have a visitor with us (Yayi). We’d make accommodations for him and listen to his point of view, and at the end of the day, I feel I’ll win.”
