The Director-General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council, Doyin Okupe, has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the rally organised in Lagos State by Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo.
Naija News reported that the Chairman of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Management Committee had on Sunday morning organised a solidarity rally in support of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Speaking during an interview with Channels Television Sunday night, Okupe claimed that some of the people that took part in the rally were imported from Osun, Oyo, and other South West states.
He stated that the rally convened by Mc Oluomo could not be compared to the rallies organised by ‘Obidients’ in different parts of the state on October 1.
Okupe added that the rally organised by the APC was a South West rally, not really a Lagos rally, adding that the ruling party is playing “catch-up” to LP.
He said: “One of the greatest things that have happened in this dispensation is that a four-month-old party is now so much in leadership that parties that have existed for 20 years and more are playing a catch-up game and it is not being done very well.
“I want to congratulate the APC for the efforts made today. What you saw was not a Lagos rally. We are a very sophisticated group — a group driven by and powered by youths.
“We have done a forensic of the tape of the rally in our laboratory. We found out that… I personally can recognise about four or five people from my federal constituency, others can recognise people from Oyo, Osun, etc.
“What you saw this morning was a South West rally, not really a Lagos rally. If you give it as a Lagos rally, it is just a fair comparison with what happened in Festac.
“You will recall that the October 1, LP rally by Obidents took place in an unprecedented and organic manner in Lekki, Festac, Ikeja and Surulere — in four different locations.
“What you saw in Lagos today was nothing compared to any one of them (referring to the four locations), maybe at least it is at par with one of them.
“What APC has been able to do, having seen the LP movement, is still about a quarter of what we did.
“We did a forensic study of the tape — 60 percent and 70 percent of those who participated were members of an institution called NURTW.”
