EKO HOT BLOG reports that scores of protesters from the Somolu Local Government Area, on Tuesday, stormed the secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State to protest against the list of candidates for chairman and vice-chairman released by the party for the forthcoming local government election in the state.

The protesters, while expressing their grievances, sang protest songs, displayed placards, and wore caps and shirts of their preferred candidate, Bowale Sosimi.

Speaking, a former secretary of the APC, Salaudeen Shehu, said, “The people of Somolu have decided that the only person they want as the council chairman is Bowale Sosunu. Even the primaries election did not hold in Somolu.

“So, we want the primary election to be rescheduled or they should declare the person that has the majority of members as the winner; that is Bowale Sosimi.”

Another protester, who declined to be named, added, “How it is possible for a winner to emerge when there was no contest? What we are clamouring for is that the party should declare Bowale as the chairmanship candidate of Somolu for the local government election. We have submitted petitions and I believe strongly that the people’s choice shall prevail,” the protester said.
