Fuad Laguda, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has emerged as the party’s candidate for Surulere federal constituency 1 bye-election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would be conducting a bye-election for Surulere federal constituency 1 in February, a position occupied by Femi Gbajabiamila before his appointment as Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu.

At the primary election conducted on Saturday in Lagos by the APC Primary Election Committee led by Yusuf Yakub, Laguda polled 30 delegate votes to clinch the ticket.

He beat Lawal Kabiru, Raheem Owokoniran and Jamila Omobolanle who all scored zero vote.
