Lagos West Senator, Solomon Adeola has won the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a primary election conducted for the Ogun West Senatorial District of Ogun State.

Adeola polled 294 votes to defeat his colleague, the incumbent Senator representing Ogun West, Tolu Odebiyi, who reportedly scored zero votes.

DAILY POST reported earlier that other aspirants in the race, Gboyega Isiaka and Abiodun Akinlade withdrew from the race after they settled for the House of Representatives tickets despite not obtaining a form seeking to go to the green chamber.

At the election held at the Orona Hall, in Ilaro, Odebiyi had earlier said he was the only candidate in the contest, a comment many are yet to understand.

DAILY POST reports that the election was conducted by the APC electoral committee led by Dr Dapo Odukoya.
