Labour Party Holds Obi-Datti Rally In Lagos Tomorrow

By Adedayo Said

Labour Party (LP) has said it will go ahead with its planned Obi-Datti rally in Lagos.

The rally will hold in Lekki, Ikeja, Surulere and Festac Town in Lagos tomorrow

At a press conference in Lagos, the party’s governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, said the Federal High Court in Lagos State has given the party the go ahead to conduct the rally.

He said the ruling network of lawyers was that the rally should not be held at Lekki toll gate, adding that they did not have intention to hold any rally at the toll gate.

He added that the Obi-Datti rally has no correlation with #EndSARS# movement.

Rhodes-Vivour enjoined residents of the state to join the march to push for the Independent of Lagos from the status quo.
he said, “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.”
