Aspirants seeking senatorial nomination in Lagos East on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have withdrawn from the race in support of the former Group Managing Director, Polaris Bank Ltd, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru.

The aspirants that withdrew from the senatorial contest included the Vice Chairman, Lagos APC, Chief Kaoli Olusanya; a former Lagos State Head of Service, Mr. Segun Ogunlewe; ex-Commissioner for Physical Planning & Urban Development Mr. Rotimi Ogunleye.

A former General Manager/Permanent Secretary, Lagos Television, Mr. Lekan Ogunbanwo; a former member of the House of Assembly, Olanrewaju Odesanya and Chairman, Ikorodu-Oga Development Association, Chief Olusegun Abiru, also stepped down from the race.
The aspirants withdrew ahead of the direct primary election scheduled to hold today across Lagos East in compliance with the requirements of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In their separate accounts yesterday, the aspirants agreed to support Abiru’s senatorial aspiration due to what they ascribed to the need for the APC to conduct a direct primary election free of acrimony and ensure harmony among the aspirants who indicated interest in the senatorial seat.
