There is currently gridlock in different parts of Lagos State as a result of the solidarity rally held for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Musiliu Akinsanya, former Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), announced a massive rally for Tinubu after supporters of Peter Obi marched on various streets of Lagos last week.
On Sunday, Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, and thousands of his supporters marched on the ever-busy Ikorodu road and other parts of Nigeria’s economic capital.
Shouts of “Awa Lokan”, “Se Jagaban”, and “Tinubu for President” rend the air as the crowd marched through the roads.
Many vehicles struggled to make their way as the crowd occupied a significant portion of the road.
“A few days before the rally, MC Oluomo had issued a statement, saying, “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.”
