House-of-RepsEight aspirants have so far indicated interest to vie for the vacant seat of Ifako-Ijaiye Federal Constituency of Lagos State following the death of its former representative, Adewale Oluwatayo.

Mr. Oluwatayo was the member representing the federal constituency in the House of Representatives on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, before his demise in Abuja on July 21, 2016.

Following his death, the race for a replacement has since begun, with aspirants in the APC and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state, showing interest.

So far, three aspirants – Demola Doherty, Yomi Ogunnusi, and Abiola Josiah – have declared an interest to contest for the seat on the platform of the APC.

Also, five aspirants have signaled their intention to contest for the seat on the platform of PDP as further confirmed by the state party chairman.

Although no date has been fixed yet for the by-election to be conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), there is speculation that more people are likely to show interest in days to come, especially from other parties.

The election is expected to be the first major popularity contest between the APC and PDP in Lagos State since the conduct of the 2015 general elections, which was won by the former.
