Several patrol vehicles and Armoured Personnel Carrier were also stationed at the access roads leading to the venue.

Some of the security agencies at the centre were the Nigeria Police, Army and Police Bomb Squad among others.

The PDP is conducting the congress to produce party officials in Lagos state that will steer its affairs for the next four years, after the aborted October 16, 2021 state congress.

Mr Taofik Gani, the outgoing Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, said that adequate measures had been put in place to have a successful state congress.

Gani said: “The expectation today is that we will have a rancour free congress. It is long-awaited.”

He urged all the aspirants to be united and work for the interest of the party.

“The party must get it right this time. We must also have a united state executive that will be so committed to the party as we go into the 2023 contest.

“I really hope that all the leaders and players today will allow free, fair and credible congress for Lagos residents to see that PDP is ready for 2023 in Lagos,” he said.

Contenders for the Lagos PDP chairmanship seat are Messrs Philips Aivoji, Niyi Adams, Hakeem Amode and Dr Amos Fawole.
