As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council holds its rally at the Teslim Balogun Stadium (TBS), in Lagos, a young man has been seen showcasing Atiku-branded food at the rally.
What makes this rally very interesting and historic is that Atiku is coming to hold his campaign in Tinubu's strongest domain, Lagos, a state where a good number of youths have declared full support for Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
Those at the rally include the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa, governorship candidate of Lagos state, Olajide Adediran, former PDP Lagos state governorship candidate, Jimi Agbaje, former senator representing Kogi west, Dino Melaye, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom, national chairman of the party, Iyorchia Ayu among other top politicians.

"This is my message to Lagos, you keep on saying that the NURTW terrorising you but the truth of the matter is that it is your government that terrorises you in the name of NURTW. I am going to put an end to the harassment of people by the members of NURTW. If they want to stop it, they would have done that.
"Poverty level when Sanwo-Olu came on board, it was 4.5% but now it is 8.5%. Unemployment rate 14.6%, now it is 36.5%. By the time we win the election, they will leave the state and run away."
