Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Transport union leader, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, on Sunday held a solidarity walk for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The rally saw MC Oluomo, who is the chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee, and other supporters of Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu march from Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere to Oshodi.
This is the second major political rally in Lagos State for Tinubu. The first was held on Monday, October 3 by women who took to the street to show their support for the APC presidential candidate.
MC Oluomo had earlier postponed the scheduled rally citing logistics problems.
In a statement he signed and posted on his Twitter account, Oluomo announced that the proposed five-million-man walk will be held to support the re-election bid of the Lagos State Governor, Bababjide Sanwo-Olu, and his deputy, Dr Obafemi Hamzat.
“This is to inform our esteemed members, supporters and lovers that our solidarity walk for the actualisation of Tinubu-Shettima Presidential ambition and the second term of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat will still hold as earlier scheduled,” he tweeted.
“We implore you all to disregard the earlier postponement notice. Scheduled as follows: Date: Sunday, October 9, 2022. Take-off point: Teslim Balogun Stadium. Termination point: Bolade Oshodi. Time: 9 am. Sorry once again for any inconvenience. Thank you.”
Reacting to the rally on Sunday, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Sanwo-Olu, Gboyega Akosile, posted a video showing MC Oluomo and thousands of supporters.
