On May 27 , Elegushi won the primary election of the APC for Eti-Osa Federal Constituency after polling 25 votes to defeat the incumbent, Obanikoro, who polled 23 votes.
In a recent development, Tobi Etti, the Director of Media Unit, Prince Oyekanmi Elegushi Campaign Organisation, disclosed in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos that he has voluntarily withdrawn his candidacy in the contest for the federal constituency seat in deference to the party’s leadership.
