The parties include Labour Party, Accord Party, Mega Party and African Democratic Congress.

Sunday Vanguard learnt that the development ended the crisis  over the choice of the candidate for the senatorial election. Following the failed party primary held for the coveted seat, all the local government party Chairmen and leaders of the PDP  in Lagos Central  had endorsed Onitiri as the best candidate.

He was also endorsed by a member of the Board of Trustees of the PDP, Senator Kofo Akerele Bucknor, and the state Youth Leader, Mr. Adeniyi Adams.
