But a protest statement was issued by Dr Amos Fawole, Alhaji Alfa
Adeoye, Chairman Surulere LGA, Engineer Kehinde Fasasi, Chairman
Eti-osa LGA, Mr. Rotimi Kujore, Chairman Lagos Island LGA Mr. Malomo
State Exco, Mr. Mike Kolawole Vice Chairman Apapa LGA, Ajisefini Fatai
Acting Chairman Apapa LGA, (Lagos Central Leaders) – Senator Kofo
Bucknor Akerele, BOT member Lagos, and the State Youth leader, Mr.
Adeniyi Adams.

It reads: "We, the undersigned leaders in Lagos Central senatorial
district, wish to inform you that we have unanimously selected Chief
Onitiri as the consensus candidate for the Lagos Central Senatorial.

"After proper review of the shoddy election process which was poorly
organised and failed two attempts at the primaries, the leaders in the
Lagos Central took this decision in view of our readiness to present
our candidate for the general election in 2019.

"We have reviewed the credentials of the four aspirants as regards
their integrity. We have come to the conclusion that Chief Onitiri is
the most qualified, most credible and most competent."
