Lagos stood still on Saturday September 20, 2014 as the South West People’s Democratic Party (PDP) convened a mega rally that brought together supporters and chieftains of the party from all the South West states. The rally which took place at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) in Lagos was graced by President Goodluck Jonathan, Vice President Namadi Sambo, PDP National Chairman, Adamu Muazu, BOT members, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti, Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro among other high ranking members of the Jonathan administration.
The rally which was a colorful display of music, dance and politicking was dominated by supporters of Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro. His banners and supporters, clad in different costumes could be seen conspicuously everywhere across the rally. A creative highlight of the Minister’s presence at the rally was a group of young stuntsmen, skaters and young ladies who were all over the place dressed in t-shirts with the inscriptions; #Korolette, #Korobucci etc. Clearly, it appears Obanikoro is prepared to run a campaign heavy on the use of creativity and pop culture.
