Former Lagos Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has been declared winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Lagos West Senatorial District Primary held at Agege Stadium, Agege.

Adebule defeated former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, and one-time Lagos Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa.

Opeifa’s quest to withdraw from the race was rebuffed by the electoral committee because voting had commenced before he announced his decision.

Adebule polled 424 votes, Obanikoro had 119 votes while Opeifa got four votes. Ten votes were voided.

Chairman, APC Lagos Senatorial Primary Election Committee Chief Emeka Okafor declared Adebule winner of the election.

Chairmen of Oriade Local Council Development Area and Agege Local Government Ramotalai Akinola-Hassan and Ganiyu Egunjobi led Adebule’s agents.
