To further strengthen Otunba Abiru’s Senatorial bid, TEAM GOA 4 SENATE 2019, the political vehicle of the former Clerk of the Lagos State House of Assembly has unveiled plans to hold a One Million-Man March to garner support for GOA’s bid for the Senate to clinch the ticket.

Meanwhile, another indication that the Otunba Abiru senatorial bid is gaining popularity and acceptance is contained in a statement by Mr Tayo Odesanya, Deputy Director-General of the Team GOA 4 Senate 2019, where he stated that the group whatsapp platform has reached its limit, due to massive subscription by stakeholders.
