A former Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Polaris Bank, Adetokunbo Mukail Abiru, Wednesday officially joined the race for Lagos East Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abiru was on Wednesday received at the APC Secretariat along ACME Road in Ikeja by Lagos State Chairman of the party, Babatunde Balogun, and other executive members.
The former banker, who’s also a former Commissioner for Finance under the then Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, used the opportunity to address the party leaders on his legislative agenda and plans for Lagos East Senatorial District, the Centre of Excellence and Nigeria.
The slot for Lagos East Senatorial District became vacant following the death of Senator Adebayo Osinowo, who died of complications arising from the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) on June 15 at the age of 64.
Abiru signalled his retirement from Polaris Bank on August 24 effective from August 31.
