Ahead of the Osun State governorship election, the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, and governors elected on the party’s platform, will storm Osun State for the party’s mega rally today.
The rally will hold at the Osogbo Township Stadium.
Already, Governors Ifeanyi Okowa, Godwin Obaseki, Aminu Tambuwal, Duoye Diri of Delta, Edo, Sokoto, Bayelsa respectively were said to have arrived in the state as of the time of filing this report.
Though the rally is scheduled to begin from 11:00 am today, the coast is still not clear on whether the party has been granted permission to use the proposed venue as of the time of filing this report.
When contacted earlier, the commissioner of information and strategy, Mrs Funke Egbemode, said the venue had been allocated before the leadership of PDP approached the government for the use of the venue.
However, PDP members have started arriving in Osogbo from across the 30 local governments of the state.
