The Labour Party (LP) has announced that it will go ahead with its planned Obi-Datti rally in Lagos State on Saturday, October 1.
Speaking at a press conference, the governorship candidate of the party in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, said the Federal High Court in the state has given them go ahead to conduct the rally.
Rhodes-Vivour invited residents of the state to join the march to push for the independence of Lagos from the status quo.
“The Obi-Datti Rally will be happening on Saturday, October 1. As the public was aware a suit was commenced on September 13 by Network of Lawyers for Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The process was to ensure that the Obi-Datti March that is supposed to happen this Saturday did not hold.
“Fortunately for us, Justice Daniel Osiagor has ruled that the march can indeed hold and even in Lekki Phase 1. The participants of the march will not converge at the toll gate and that was never the plan but they will be allowed the right of passage on their procession to Falomo.
“So, the rally is going to go on and it is my utmost joy to invite everybody to join us on this march that will be happening in four locations across Lagos. It is happening in Festac, Surulere, Lekki Phase 1 and Ikeja.
“Join us as we not only show solidarity to the Obi-Datti March and the movement that has engulfed the entire country but also to celebrate our aspiration for an independent Lagos as well. It is very important that we join this march to also celebrate the independence of Nigeria,” he said.
Rhodes-Vivour said the party is working closely with the police, the Department of the State Services (DSS) and other relevant security agencies to guarantee the safety of those coming out to march. (New Telegraph)
