‘Lagos rally marks end of dictatorship’
The campaign organisation of the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said the massive crowd that attended the Tuesday rally for the candidate in Lagos State is a “final blow to dictatorship”.
“The rally which was anchored on the joblessness and insecurity which the Buhari-led administration has brought upon Nigeria enjoyed massive cheers from the attendees,” it said in an emailed statement sent to The Guardian.
The rally was held three days after President Muhammadu Buhari visited the state for a similar outing with his party, All Progressives Congress.
At the campaign event held at the Tafawa Balewa Square were Abubakar, his running mate, Mr Peter Obi, the director-general of the PDP presidential campaign Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the national chairman of the PDP Prince Uche Secondus, the governorship candidate of the PDP in Lagos Mr Jimi Agbaje.
While speaking at the speaking, Atiku pledged to reposition the economy and create jobs and wealth.
His running mate Peter Obi solicited for support of Lagosians, touting Atiku’s pro-business credentials.
PDP’s national chair, who also spoke at the rally, accused the ruling APC of planning to rig the poll. He insisted that his party will prevent that from happening.
