PDP, Accord infiltrate Lagos, grab 6 Reps seats
The political composition in Lagos state has changed, as the other parties have grabbed six House of Representatives seats in the state, which was hitherto an all APC affair.
The PDP grabbed five of the seats, while the Accord party pinched one, in mostly Igbo dominated areas.
In Amuwo Odofin local government the PDP candidate, Oghene Egboh, who is from the Niger-Delta, defeated Mr. Ganiyu Olukolu of the APC.
In Ajeromi/Ifelodun, home to Ajegunle, the PDP candidate, Mrs. Rita Orji, who also hails from the South-East, defeated Taiwo Adenekan of the APC.
The story was the same Ojo LG, where the PDP candidate, Mr. Tajudeen Obasa, won the seat.
In Surulere federal constituency 2, Mr. Tunji Soyinka of the PDP defeated Mr. Hakeem Bamgbala of the APC.
In Mushin federal constituency 2, the APC candidate, Yemi Alli, lost to Dauda Kako-Aare of the Accord Party.
Kako-Aare, who is the incumbent, lost at the APC primary last December to Alli and defected to Accord.
In Oshodi/Isolo federal constituency 2, the incumbent, Mr. Akeem Muniru, lost to Mr. Tony Nwoolu of the PDP.
