Salvador Emerges Lagos PDP Chair Again
The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has re-elected Moshood Adegoke Salvador as its chairman by affirmation.
Salvador and other newly elected members were selected through a consensus arrangement which, however, did not go down well with one of the aspirants, Dr Adegbola Dominic.
Other newly elected officials of the party were Alhaji Hassan Waliu (deputy state chairman), Prince Muiz Dosunmu (secretary), Kunle Okunola (organising secretary), Niyi Adams (youth leader), Mrs Shola Oladehinbo (woman leader) and Barr. Taofik Gani (publicity secretary).
Gani told our correspondent yesterday that the congress was held as a family affair.
According to him, the congress was held at a venue in Jibowu area of the state and had the officers returned unopposed.
The congress was supervised by members of the state congress committee which included Hon. Dubem Onyia (chairman); Hon. John O. Odey (member); Col. Abibu Aliyu (member); Mrs Cecilia Undie (member); and Mr. Joseph Asawa (member/secretary).
The stakeholders had earlier met all interested parties where it was agreed to allot offices to different zones in the state.
Notable leaders present at the congress included, Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe, Senator Kofo Bucknor-Akerele, Capt. Tunji Shelle, Jimi Agbaje, Otunba Segun Adewale, all the five members of the House of Representatives and the only member of the Lagos House of Assembly.
Efforts to reach Dominic who is said to be grumbling over the outcome of the congress proved abortive as he didn’t pick calls put through to his known number while he is yet to reply a text sent to him as of the time of filing this report.
