Lawyers in their Hundreds took to the streets Wednesday in Lagos to drum support for the Muhammadu Buhari and Pro. Yemi Osinbajo presidential ticket under the platform of the All Progrssives Congress (APC).
The lawyers who tagged their outing a “‘Walk for Change” said this is necessary to create awareness on why Nigerians must support change of government through the forthcoming general elections.
According to the National Coordinator of the group, Mr. Adesina Ogunlana the lawyers under the aegis Lawyers4Change who walked through some major streets in Ikeja also campaigned for a change of government at the federal level at the February 14 elections.
The ‘Walk’ took off from the Bar Centre of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Ikeja, through Oba Akinjobi way, Oba Akran road, Obafemi Awolowo way, Allen Avenue, Toyin street, Olowu street and back to the centre.
Ogunlana while addressing the crowd at Obafemi Awolowo junction and Alade market, said that the presidential candidate of the APC, Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Osinbajo would bring integrity into governance of the country.
He further said that the combination duo represented honour, integrity, hardwork and entrenched for rule of law in the country.
He therefore urged the people to ensure that they collected their PVC so as not to be disenfranchised on election day.
