As the agitation for an Ikorodu Division indigene to clinch the Lagos east senatorial seat in 2019 becomes hotter, a prominent APC chieftain and former State Secretary of the party, Primate Charles Odugbesi has thrown his hat into the ring to clinch the well coveted senatorial seat.
Though, Primate Charles Odugbesi is yet to formally declare his intent for the Senate seat, his recent posts on facebook and other social media platforms with the message, ‘ I stand for my division, Straight to the Red Chamber, Yeye le n pe … E gba Very Soon’ is an indication that the experienced politician is ready to challenge the incumbent, Senator Ashafa come 2019.
With Primate Charles Odugbesi and Otunba Abiru’s imminent declaration for the Lagos East Senatorial seat come 2019, the idea that Ikorodu division lacks credible candidates to challenge the incumbent is gradually being laid to rest, even with the possibility of more Ikorodu indigenes declaring for the senate seat.
Apparently, with these two powerful indigenes potentially in the race, political permutations and calculation for the senatorial election would be disrupted and the purported endorsement of the incumbent for a third term may be set aside eventually.
This is wishing Primate Charles Odugbesi the best of luck on his latest political move, as we await his formal declaration, soon.
