Obi Group Fixes Date To Hold 4-million-man Rally In Lagos
A Peter Obi-Yussuf Datti support group, under the aegis of Lagos4ObiDatti, has announced plans to hold a 4-million-man march in Lagos State on October 1.
The spokesman of the Lagos4ObiDatti Central Organizing Committee, Christopher Ademuyiwa, stated this on Monday during a press conference at the National Art Theater, Lagos.
Ademuyiwa said the march would hold simultaneously in three different locations in Lagos, namely Admiralty gate Lekki Phase 1; Archbishop Vining Memorial Church, GRA, Ikeja; and at FHA field on 23 road, Festac.
He pointed out that plans have been made to have buses transport Obidients to and from their locations, and the bus pickup points will be released on social media.
Ademuyiwa, however, refuted any attempt to link the Lagos rally to the 2020 #EndSars Movement, adding that the march is legal and constitutional.
He said: “This march is more like a carnival, and the Obidients in Lagos are gearing up in large numbers to show their support for the Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed presidential ticket.
“Also, plans have been made to have buses transport Obidients to and from their locations, and the bus pickup points will be released on social media.
“Our march is legal and constitutional, it is within the electoral time frame and calendar released by INEC and all security agencies have been duly and formally informed using the appropriate means.
“The police, NSCDC, road safety and DSS will be on the ground to provide security as we march.”
