But there was serious resistance from some stakeholders of the party which led to the delay in finalising the selection of the running mate.

We however learnt that the candidate was able to convince the party’s stakeholders, citing the popularity of Jenifa among the youth population and the fact that she hailed from Lagos East Senatorial District, precisely Ikorodu.

A source close to the governorship candidate confirmed the selection of Akindele but added, “it has not been announced officially.”
