Residents in Lagos State have been asked for their cooperation and understanding over the traffic rerouting around the Teslim Balogun Stadium, the location of the APC Presidential Campaign Committee’s event scheduled for Saturday.

The party said that plans had been finalized for “an epoch-making carnival-like” event for Sen. Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate, and Sen. Kashim Shettima, Tinubu’s running mate.

Sen. Ganiyu Solomon, the local organizing committee chairman for the APC Presidential Rally and the PCC director general for Lagos state, said this during a news conference on Wednesday.

According to Solomon, the APC presidential rally was slated to take place at Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“The event holds a promise for mass attendance by members of our great party and the general public because of the popularity of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Tinubu has remained the most consistent, biggest contributor and the most visible democratic icon since the advent of this dispensation in 1999.

“You may wish to recall that he excelled as a senator of the Federal Republic representing Lagos – West Senatorial District, and as the governor of Lagos state from 1999 to 2007.

“Therefore, the event is like a homecoming for our leader and mentor who has become a national pride.

“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, 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.
During his speech, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, the APC chairman for Lagos state, predicted that a sizable contingent of Tinubu’s fans and party members will show up to the gathering without being forced to do so.

According to Ojelabi, the necessary preparations had been completed for a calm and effective rally.

Dayo Israel, the National Youth Leader of the APC, stated that the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), officials, supporters, and members were all eager to attend the gathering in Lagos state.
