Hon Sikiru Kuti is the Majority leader and Councilor representing the ward, son of Alhaji Muda Kuti, the immediate past LGA Chairman of the All Progressives Congress and an Apex leader too.
Hon Kuti is serving his second term, though rumors are rife that he wants to break the records by gunning for a third term. Political observers believe that Hon Kuti’s chances may be slim as his tenure is said not to have impacted positively in the lives of his constituents and he never contributed much in the legislature.
However, some strong contenders from Hon Taiwo camp are waiting in the wings to take over power from him. One of them is Hon Omotayo Dosunmu described as a serial aspirant.
There is also Hon Mrs. Oyeniyi Tunrayo Ibukun, the daughter of Alhaja NimotaYusuf,the Medical Director of Idera Medical Home, a politician and one of the Ward F leaders, whose Medical outfit had existed for about 35 years in the Community, she may not be an easy shove due to her mother’s influence and some other forces in her support.
Hon Ibukun has been a staunch member of Hon Kolawole Taiwo group since the year 2003 and she is among the ward Excos.
It is however not very clear whether Hon Kolawole Taiwo and the group’s Apex leader Stephen Ayodele would agree to her candidacy for reasons best known to them.
There are other aspirants from other groups in the ward who may seriously be warming up. They include Yekini from PMG group and Ibrahim Ajao of the Ifelodun Reformers group
