The Director of Media and Publicity of the PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has labeled today’s street rally in Lagos by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) as preposterous and a deliberate attempt by the party to shore up the sagging image and reputation of its National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The rally, organised by the Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo Campaign Organisation, kicked off from Maryland, along Ikorodu Road through Funsho Williams Avenue and terminated at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere.

Fani-Kayode alleged in a statement in Abuja that the rally was funded with part of Tinubu’s loot. “The looting must stop. The deception must stop. The people must say through their votes that ‘enough is enough’. We therefore call on Lagosians, especially the youths who have been mobilised and promised N10,000 each to march tomorrow (today), to collect the money, since it is their money anyway, and reject these charlatans and their lying APC at the polls,” he said.

Fani-Kayode claimed that the rally is aimed at drumming support for APC’s “sinking leader and overwhelmed godfather, Bola Tinubu” in the light of the mind-boggling revelations, in a TV documentary titled ‘Unmasking the Real Tinubu’.

According to the PDP campaign spokesman in the statement released ahead of the rally, “We would not have bothered about the APC and the decision of its members to bear their silly brooms during their pro-Tinubu march in Lagos, but for the information at our disposal which link them to a plan to hurl invectives, as they have always shamelessly done, at our presidential candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan, our governorship candidate in Lagos, Mr. Jimi Agbaje and some of our party leaders, including Chief Olabode George and Senator Musiliu Obanikoro.

“It is sardonic that the APC is mobilising its members and supporters in Lagos and environs for a march to sing songs in Tinubu’s honour and chant his praises when, in fact, the people of Lagos, having now known the extent of his manipulative and acquisitive stranglehold on the economy of the state, should be the ones to embark on a spontaneous protest against the will of one man to perpetually subjugate the people to an ungodly economic and political control.

“We make bold to say that if there should be any rally or protest in Lagos, such should be directed against the exposed fake lion of Bourdillion. The people should use the rally to demand to know how he acquired the humongous items of property listed against his name in the squalid documentary.”

The erstwhile Aviation Minister, noted that, the time has come for the good people of Lagos to deliver themselves from the bondage of the APC and its errant and autocratic godfather. According to him, the forthcoming general elections present the opportunity to put an end to the evil reign of a gang of politicians and their leader in the APC who have appropriated the commonwealth of Lagos to service their selfish political and economic agenda to the detriment of the people.
