Press Statement As APC Kicks Off Campaign In Lagos


Tuesday, January 8th, 2019.





An unprecedented party faithfuls, supporters and the general public attended the official flag-off rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Sky Power Grounds, GRA Ikeja Lagos today Tuesday 8th January 2019.


Participants started trooping into the ground for the flag-off as early as 7am to lend their supports to the gubernatorial candidate of the party Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu and his running mate Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat.

The rally was attended by who-is-who in Lagos State including the incumbent Governor Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, his deputy Dr. (Mrs) Idiat Oluranti Adebule and the Secretary to the State Government Mr. Tunji Bello.


Party Chieftains were also present largely at the ground breaking event to witness the occasion among which were party Chairman Alhaji Tunde Balogun, GAC members, serving and former Senators, Federal House of Representatives members and State House of Assembly members.


The ruling party was largely supported by a coalition of other political parties in the State under the umbrella of CP3 who have jointly adopted the APC candidate Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu as their choice for the 2019 general elections.


The misconstrued feud that greeted the successful occasion towards the end was however a crisis between factions of union groups who were present at the venue.


The event has been adjudged one of the most attended political flag off in the State with the number of people recorded at the occasion.
