Another winner in today's primaries is Damola Kasumu, the grandson of the late Iyaloja General of Lagos, Abibat Mogaji, who will represent Ikeja Constituency 2.
With this turn around, it is not certain if Brown will still be a member of the party going by what observers say is a huge disappointment for her.
