Mr. Femi Otedola, Chairman/CEO of Forte Oil, has accepted to run for the governorship seat of the Lagos State under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Naijaray can confirm that the party offered the billionaire oil magnate the ticket of the party, and he wholeheartedly accepted.
Otedola will therefore, in the long run square up against whoever the All Progressives Congress (APC) throws up as its party candidate as it is still embroiled in battle of supremacy between the loyalists of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the incumbent governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
This was also confirmed by Ovation media boss, Dele Muhammadu on his twitter handle.
