Lagos East: Odesanya Steps Down For Abiru




The coast is becoming more clear for the emergence of Polaris Bank Managing Director, Tokunbo Abiru as the Senator representing Lagos East.

A major stumbling block in the order was recently removed with a former member of the Lagos  State House of Assembly, Lanre Odesanya stepping down from the race.

Odesanya stepped down for Abiru, who is believed to have been endorsed by Lagos East stakeholders.

Describing Abiru as a consensus candidate in a statement, Odesanya said his candidacy is watershed.

He said: “If you may recall, I was emphatic on consensus. It is not antithetical to democracy. On this note, I humbly commend the wisdom applied by the Governance Advisory Council (GAC).

“Indeed, it is epochal and shall remain a watershed in the annals of our political history as a Centre of Excellence.

‘’I heartily congratulate our own amiable son of the soil, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru, on his emergence as the flag bearer.”
