Power Greed! Alimosho Wait to Scuttle Gov. Aregbesola’s Senatorial Ambition
Strong indications have emerged that the Osun state governor may emerge as the next Lagos West senatorial candidate. This is because of recent developments in the political setting of Lagos West, a senatorial district which is widely believed to be under Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola’s firm control.
