Despite heavy downpour in the early hours of Sunday morning, a mammoth number of residents in Lagos led by Chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly called MC Oluomo, staged a five-million-man walk in support of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Kashim Shettima, and Lagos State Governor, Bababjide Sanwo-Olu in the 2023 general polls.
The rally which is sponsored by Ex-Chairman of the Lagos State’s chapter of National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, MC Oluomo, saw a large number of supporters gathered at the Teslim Balogun stadium, Surulere.
Nollywood stars led by Saidi Balogun were in attendance adorning symbolic colours with the insignia of Tinubu and Shettima.
Security personnel were on ground to ensure that the protection and security of participants are guaranteed as they shut down Lagos for APC.
According to MC Oluomo, the aim of the rally is for the actualization of Tinubu-Shettima presidential ambition and reelection of Sanwo-Olu.
He urged all resident to come out en masse in the solidarity walk for the APC.
“This is going to be a mega rally, we are going to shut Lagos down for Asiwaju Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu.
“The reason why we postponed the rally initially, was because of some logistics and situations that were supposed to be put into proper perspectives which we have sorted out.
“The APC chieftains and stakeholders have blessed the rally and we are ready to roar. Maximum security guaranteed. We want to show our support, strength, and capacity for APC candidates because they are the best for the job at hand.
“I hereby, urge all ‘BATists’ (supporters of Tinubu) and Sanwo-Olu to come out in large numbers to tell the world that Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu are the best candidates for the presidency and governorship slots for the state come 2023 general polls,” he said
