“The event holds a promise for mass attendance by members of our great party and the general public because of the popularity of our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“Tinubu has remained the most consistent, biggest contributor and the most visible democratic icon since the advent of this dispensation in 1999.

“You may wish to recall that he excelled as a senator of the Federal Republic representing Lagos – West Senatorial District, and as the governor of Lagos state from  1999 to 2007.

“Therefore, the event is like a homecoming for our leader and mentor who has become a national pride.

“I wish to seize this opportunity to invite all our party leaders and members to this epoch-making and carnival – like event as it gives an opportunity for our presidential candidate to address the people on his manifesto aptly tagged: ‘RENEWED HOPE’.

According to him,  as a responsible political party, it is imperative to seek the cooperation of members of the general public as regards the need for temporary diversion of traffic and mass movement of supporters within the vicinity of the rally.

He urged all participants to be of good and peaceful conduct, assuring that, “the Nigerian Police Force, LASTMA and other law enforcement agencies will be fully mobilised to ensure an event devoid of the security infractions and traffic disruptions.”

On the anticipated number of supporters at the rally, Solomon said the committee was expecting a “full house” of supporters, hence the plan not to leave any stones unturned to make sure the exercise was hitch-free.

In his remarks, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, the APC Chairman in Lagos state, said  that a mammoth crowd of Tinubu’s supporters and party members would attend the rally without being coerced, saying residents would show their love for Tinubu.

Ojelabi said adequate arrangements had been made for a peaceful and successful rally.

The National Youth Leader of APC, Mr Dayo Israel said the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), party officials, support groups and members were all excited to come to Lagos state for the rally.

“We are all turning up for Asiwaju. We can show to the whole world that Lagos is for Asiwaju. Lagos is going to set the pace for all other states to follow,” Israel said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the event was attended by members of the PPC in Lagos state, APC’s state executive committee and other leaders and chieftains of the party.

Biden Campaign Missteps Lead to Reelection Withdrawa

Biden Campaign Missteps Lead to Reelection Withdrawa

U.S. President Joe Biden’s decision to end his reelection campaign on Sunday followed a series of strategic missteps by his campaign team and White House aides. These errors amplified concerns that the 81-year-old president wouldn’t be able to win November’s election or run the country for another four years.

Biden’s halting performance at the June 27 presidential debate against Republican candidate Donald Trump pushed even some of his closest allies to question his endurance for a full campaign. This episode fueled a growing Democratic party movement questioning the wisdom of his second term. Within days, Biden went from the party’s figurehead to a liability, making him the first sitting president to stand down from a possible reelection since Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968.

Biden initiated the debate by telling radio show host Howard Stern in April that he’d engage Trump, despite worries from some Democratic allies that a debate might not improve his chances and could cast him in an unflattering light. Biden’s aides believed they had an advantage in agreeing to a June debate with CNN, setting the rules to favor Biden’s style. However, Biden’s performance during the debate, where he stumbled over his words and lost his train of thought, surprised and concerned voters, donors, and Democratic officials.

Following the debate, Trump criticized Biden’s incoherence, and Biden admitted his poor performance. Calls for Biden to step down began almost immediately. High-profile Democrats, including Jim Clyburn and Nancy Pelosi, began to question Biden’s viability as a candidate.

Despite efforts to regain momentum, including interviews, news conferences, and speeches, Biden continued to make missteps, such as confusing names at the NATO summit. Polls showed Biden trailing other Democrats in key states and districts, though the nationwide race remained close.

Biden was eventually persuaded to withdraw from the race while recovering from COVID-19 at his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, home, where he had time to reflect on his decision.
