According to DailyTrust.com, There was a mild drama on Wednesday as the senator representing Lagos West, Solomon Olamilekan Adeola, broke down in tears after he was presented with nomination form of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest for Ogun West senatorial ticket. Adeola, popularly known as Yayi, had transferred his voting right and the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership from Lagos to Ogun State, as part of his ambition to run for Senate of Ogun West. But on Wednesday some APC leaders from Yewa under the auspices of West to West for Dapo Abiodun (W2W4DA) presented senatorial expression of interest and nomination forms to the Lagos West Senator in his hometown in Ilaro. Chief Mufutau Ajibola, a member of the Governor Elders Forum who presented the form to the Senator on behalf of the group noted that the forms were purchased with contribution from members of the group and sympathizers. Ajibola said the fund was contributed by 71 people within 48 hours. According to him, most of them were civil servants, professionals in the private sector, business men, community leaders and Ogun West indigenes in diaspora.
