Tinubu Holds Mega Rally In Lagos

The ruling party candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, took the last lap of his presidential campaign to his Lagos power base, where he received a triumphant welcome at a packed stadium.

Thousands gathered inside the Teslim Balogun sports complex in the city centre, providing a raucous climax to Tinubu’s nationwide road tour four days before election day.

Dubbed the “Godfather of Lagos” for the political influence he wields, Tinubu says his two terms from 1999 to 2007 as Lagos governor give him the experience Nigeria needs. A crowd of party supporters ferried in buses arrived at the venue in the morning, singing, dancing and waving the party flags as Afrobeats musicians performed.
