APC Elders Says Ogun West Senate Seat 'not for Sale
Some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State on Wednesday kicked against alleged plans to hand over the party's Ogun West Senate ticket for the next election to a "foreigner."
They also insisted that the senatorial seat "is not for sale."
The party elders including the former Minister of Education (State), Senator Iyabo Anisulowo, spoke in Ilaro, Yewa South Local Government Area of the state, during the meeting of Ogun West stakeholders.
The meeting tagged "Preserving The Integrity of Ogun West Senatorial District," attracted former commissioners, Local Government Chairmen, and members of the State House of Assembly, from the region.
Galaxy TV News reports the meeting followed the controversy trailing the ambition of the Lagos West Senator, Olamilekan Adeola (Yayi) who just relocated to the state to contest for the Ogun West seat.
They also insisted that the accountant turned politician "is not an indigene of the state."
Speaking at the stakeholders' meeting, the APC leaders in their separate remarks described Adeola's ambition as an aberration and illegal.
They also ruled out the alleged endorsement of Senator Adeola as the flagbearer of APC by some leaders of Ogun West, insisting that such a position didn't represent the collective interest of the region.
