Simultaneously, party members will elect House of Assembly candidate for Kosofe 11. The only aspirant is Saheed Obafemi, Assistant Secretary of Lagos APC.

The seat became vacant, following the demise of Tunde Braimoh, one-time chairman of Kosofe Council.

Lagos APC Publicity Secretary Seye Oladejo said the district and constituency chapters were ready for the shadow poll.

Hailing the consensus option that will throw up the candidates, he said: ”It’s going to be by affirmation or ratification because it’s not  competitive. Members will be accredited.”

He added: “The collated results for the senatorial primary will be announced at Somolu Local Government Secretariat while that of Lagos State House of Assembly for Kosofe 2 will be announced at the Kosofe Local Government Secretariat about the same time.”
