The Lagos Goodluck/Sambo Independent Campaign Group on Friday embarked on a road show to drum up support for the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the road show was led by Sen. Musilu Obanikoro.
Supporters and members of the PDP in the state danced through streets from Dopemu Bridge along the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, where the rally took off, through major streets in Lagos West senatorial district.
It was a huge fanfare as the participants in the show sang while distributing leaflets canvassing support for the Jonathan/ Sambo ticket.
Addressing supporters, Obanikoro, the immediate past Minister of State for Defence reiterated the need for Nigerians not to be swayed by propaganda against Jonathan’s administration.
According to him, Jonathan’s administration, contrary to what Nigerians are being fed, is so far the best in the history of the country.
Obanikoro said, “Jonathan’s humility and tolerance had kept Nigeria together so far.
“People are trying to sell blue as white to Nigerians. We cannot afford to go backward.
“What we are expecting are brighter days that the Jonathan/Sambo administration will bring, not darker days.
“It’s either we embrace the future or go back to the trenches as we inch closer to the Election Day”.
Obanikoro said that a vote for Jonathan was a vote for the progress of the nation.
“The agenda of the present administration should be allowed to continue”, he said.
Obanikoro called on INEC to ensure that all the preparations for the general elections were completed in time.
