News reaching us from Surulere claims Desmond did not actually win any election, that he was imposed by some notable godfathers. It takes a lot to impose a greenhorn against an age long and experienced incumbent.

Recall that Hon Kabiru Lawal was about turning the seat into a family title, even in a family setting like the Oyo empire, we still have the Oyo Mesi, so it was quite easy to use the Desmond effect against the much maligned Hon Kabiru Lawal.

Further, Kabiru grew unpopular over the years, abandoning his goons at Shitta, the Friday biblical agidigbos and turned himself into a man Friday for Senator Remi Tinubu. Remi could not save him when the chips were down, even Remi cannot save herself at the moment, as the Yorubas say, olomele mo mele!! He thus, got his just deserts from Desmond Eliot.

The primary was peaceful at all the venues monitored by our correspondent except in Surulere where there was tension because Nollywood star, Desmond Elliot, was said to have been favoured against the incumbent and two-term member of the House, Kabiru Lawal.

It was reliably gathered that Elliot is ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s candidate.

It was also gathered that Lawal will be compensated with the chairmanship position of Surulere Local Government.
