Owolabi Salis has emerged the governorship candidate of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) for the 2019 elections in Lagos.
Salis emerged by consensus through a voice vote at the party’s primaries in Lagos on Friday .
Salis, a Chartered Accountant, had in 2003 and 2007 aspired for governorship on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Candidates for seats of the state House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate also emerged through consensus at the party’s primaries.
The process of selecting the candidates by the party’s delegates was monitored by officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), led by Ugwuegbu Titus.
The Chairman of the party in the state, Kola Ajayi, commended members for their orderly conduct.
He said that the peaceful primaries showed AD was a true democratic party.
Ajayi praised the sportsmanship displayed by all members, especially those who sacrificed their ambitions for consensus candidates to emerge.
He urged members to continue to show loyalty and dedication to the party, as that was needed to realise its goals in the state.
