Lagos in a move to inject a new aspirant exposed

The plot by the APC leadership in Lagos State to obtain a new Senatorial Aspirant form for Lagos West Senatorial District after the closure of sales and submission of forms has been revealed. 

Not pleased with the inability of their preferred Candidate- Adejoke Orolope-Adefulire to contest the Lagos West Senatorial race, the Lagos APC Leader has embarked on illegal means of obtaining a new form for a new aspirant. 

It will be recalled that the trio of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, Adejoke Orelope -Adefulire and Kayode Opeifa had obtained the forms to contest for the seat in the red chambers but only Obanikoro and Opeifa attended the screening exercise while Orelope stepped down her ambition to retain her current appointment. 

Meanwhile, not satisfied by the chances of the remaining aspirants at the primary, the National Leader in collusion with the National Chairman of the APC are on the verge of obtaining a form through the back door. However, how a man like Adamu Abdullahi with his pedigree will allow such illegality be perpetrated under his watch, is left to be seen. 

It is believed that the new form (if successfully obtained) will be for either of these 3 persons. Top on the list is his sister-in-law, Dr. (Mrs) Lola Akande, a  commissioner in the Cabinet of Governor Babajide Sanwoolu, his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat or the former Deputy Governor, Mrs. Idiat Adebule. 

The Lagos leader is attempting to leverage on the perceived relationship formed between Idiat Adebule who was a member of the APC reconciliation committee headed by Adamu Abdullahi, to have his ways. 

Interestingly, the APC Screening Committee headed by Alhaji Shinkafi, the former Governor of Zamfara State has since submitted its report. Therefore, it is left to be seen how an unscreened aspirant will pick the party's ticket in Lagos West.
