The APC Presidential Campaign Committee (PCC) in Lagos State has sought the cooperation and understanding of residents, regarding diversion of traffic around the Teslim Balogun Stadium, venue of its rally billed for Saturday.
Mr Solomon said the APC presidential rally had been scheduled to hold on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
“I wish to seize this opportunity to invite all our party leaders and members to this epoch-making and carnival – like event as it gives an opportunity for our presidential candidate to address the people on his manifesto aptly tagged: ‘RENEWED HOPE’.”
According to him, 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.
He urged all participants to be of good and peaceful conduct, assuring that, “the Nigerian Police Force, LASTMA and other law enforcement agencies will be fully mobilised to ensure an event devoid of the security infractions and traffic disruptions.”
On the anticipated number of supporters at the rally, Mr Solomon said the committee was expecting a “full house” of supporters, hence the plan not to leave any stones unturned to make sure the exercise was hitch-free.
In his remarks, Cornelius Ojelabi, the APC chairman in Lagos state, said that a mammoth crowd of Mr Tinubu’s supporters and party members would attend the rally without being coerced, saying residents would show their love for the presidential candidate.
Mr Ojelabi said adequate arrangements had been made for a peaceful and successful rally.
