OSOGBO—The Vice Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Osun State Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola would today lead
Nigerians in the great road procession tagged “Nigerians Walk for Change.”
The road procession is coming up barely 24 hours after the APC kicked off its presidential campaign in Port Harcourt.
The party in a statement released in Osogbo yesterday said that the State capital will be agog when tens of thousands of people take to designated streets in the state capital in a marathon walk from Government House at 7am through Oke-fia/ Olaiya- Odi-Olowo/Isale Aro through Gbemu Junction, Oluode Market, Boorepo- Aiyetoro and terminating at Osogbo City Stadium.
According to Kunle Oyatomi, the APC Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, “the great walk signifies the determination of Osun citizens and indeed the entire South West of Nigeria to join hands with the APC to effect change for the better in Nigeria under the leadership of General Muhammadu Buhari and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo”.
The exercise will move from Osun to Ondo State on Friday, January 9t, 2015 in Akure where citizens are already gearing up to also “walk for change”, the APC said.
