Lawmakers from the ruling All Progressives Congress, Senator Olamilekan Adeola Solomon, Hon. Tunji Akinosi, and the Minister of State for Environment and Ecological Management, Dr. Iziaq Salako, have have all present at the venue of the Ogun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, at Isabo Court in Abeokuta, the State Capital.
