Sources claimed the arrangement was that the All Progressives Congress Lagos West Senatorial ticket was supposed to be a ‘compensation of sort’ to Seriki for ‘contribution towards party development’.
But Tinubu’s favourite expected to seek re- election back to the House of Representatives waltzed into the picture and snatched victory.
Though he might have defeated Seriki for his party’s ticket for the senatorial position – Yayi faces a worthy opponent in Aeroland ( the street name for Segun Adewale) the more popular candidate he piped to his present position during the general election.
Adewale is the People’s Democratic Party for Lagos West Senatorial seat.
Sources confirmed Adewale comes to the contest wiser to the ploy of Adeola and his backers against the backdrop of the 2011 House of Representatives Defeat.
‘it will certainly be an interesting contest, with Aeroland vowing to take his pound of flesh against the man he alleged rigged him out of what was his for the taking’
Added another source ‘what makes the upcoming contest more interesting is that Adewale was formerly a member of the Asiwaju Tinubu political family..he defected to the opposing camp over imposition that threatened his political ambition....the outcome will determine whether he took the right decision or not’
