Ogun state West APC elders have submitted a list of their preferred APC candidate from the zone to Governor Ibikunle Amosun, for the 2019 Ogun State Governorship Poll.
The elders submitted the list at a meeting with Amosun on Monday evening at the governor’s office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
Ahead of the Monday’s meeting, the elders had met with the eleven APC governorship aspirants from Ogun West, last Thursday in Abeokuta.
During the Thursday meeting, all the aspirants signed a memorandum of understanding to facilitate a seamless selection of the preferred candidate among them by the elders, and to prevent any form of protests or defection by those not considered.
The elders, who were led to the Monday’s meeting with Governor Amosun by Chief Ajibola Olagbayi, submitted a list of their choice candidate as demanded by the governor at an earlier meeting last month.
Sources close to the Monday meeting, say that Chief Biyi Otegbeye tops the list of the shortlisted aspirants, followed by the governor’s chief of staff, Chief Tolu Odebiyi and the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekumbi.
At the last meeting of the elders with the elders last August 8, the governor asks them to come up with a consensus candidate, for the zone among the APC governorship aspirants from the Ogun West.Please subscribe to our newsletter
