 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.
