[Bamidele Upfront] Tinubu On The Cusp Of History, Bámidélé Adémólá-Olátéjú - A few days to the Social Democratic Party (SDP) senatorial primaries, he had 63 banked delegates and he needed 70 to edge out Funso Williams and emerge as the party’s flag-bearer for Lagos West Senatorial district. There was only one path to winning the primaries – get the delegates and secure them against defection. His politically suave mother sent him to Justice Akinyemi Obe. He told Justice Obe he needed 7 delegates, Obe told him delegates can defect before and on the day of primaries.
