A coalition of support groups for Labour Party presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, has announced that it plans to hold its Lagos four-million-man march for Obi-Datti.
The Lagos4Obidatti Central Organising Committee made the announcement at a press conference in Lagos, stating that the march would take place across three major locations on Saturday, October 1, 2022.
Chairman of the Publicity and Media Committee, Christopher Ademuyiwa, said the rally would hold simultaneously in Lekki Phase 1, Archbishop Vining Memorial Church, GRA, Ikeja and Federal Housing Authority field in Festac.
“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,” he explained.
Ademuyiwa added: “Our march is legal and constitutional. It is within the electoral time frame and calendar released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). All security agencies have been duly and formally informed using the appropriate means.
“The police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and Department of State Services (DSS) will be on the ground to provide security,” he further disclosed.
