Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will on Saturday hold a presidential campaign rally for the party presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu at the Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos.
Announcing the preparation of the party for the rally at a press briefing in Lagos on Wednesday, the Director General of the Local Organising Committee for the presidential campaign in Lagos State Campaign Council, Senator Ganiyu Solomon said the rally will be a homecoming for the former Lagos state governor and the national leader of the party.
Solomon said the rally holds a promise for mass attendance by members of the APC and members of the general public because of the popularity of the party Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Tinubu, whom he said has remained the most consistent, and the biggest contributor and the most visible democratic icon since the advent of democratic dispensation in 1999.
“You may wish to recall that Asiwaju Tinubu excelled as a Senator of the Federal Republic representing Lagos – West Senatorial District, and as the Governor of Lagos State between 1999 and 2007. Therefore, the event is like a homecoming for our leader and mentor who has become a national pride.

“As a responsible political party, it is imperative to seek the cooperation of members of the general public as regards the need for temporary diversion of traffic and mass movement of supporters within the vicinity of the rally.”
On security arrangement Senator Solomon reassured members of the public that men of the Nigerian Police Force, LASTMA officials and other law enforcement agencies would be fully mobilized to ensure that the rally will be an event devoid of the security infractions and traffic disruptions.
Speaking about security measures put in place because of the anticipated large number of people that will attend the rally, the party chairman in the State, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi said, “On the issue of security, we will try to make the venue very conducive for all.”
He explained that the number of people expected to grace the occasion is obvious, because the campaign is a homecoming for the national leader of the party and the party presidential candidate.
Speaking further on the arrangement made for the rally, the party publicity Secretary, Hon. Seye Oladejo said the Police, LASTMA and other security agencies will be mobilized to ensure a rally devoid of any infractions, just as he said there will be formal accreditation for journalists that will cover the rally.
In his submission the National youth leader of the party, Hon. Dayo Israel said, “The national chairman of the party, Abdullahi Adamu and other chieftains of the party will be in attendance.
In Lagos on Saturday we have a duty to turn up for Asiwaju Tinubu. A victory for Tinubu is a victory for Lagos. We can show the world that Lagos is for Asiwaju a hundred percent.”
