Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, National Leader of All Progressives Congress and the former governor of Lagos state, has ordered that 18 out of the 57 former Chairmen of Local Government Councils and Local Council Development Authorities in Lagos state who served only one term between 2011 and 2014 should be allowed to contest for the same seat unopposed in the forth coming local government elections in the state. He said this at the stakeholders meeting of the party which held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, at the party secretariat on Acme Road, Ogba, Ikeja, Lagos.
