Peter Obi meets Pan Yoruba groups Saturday in Ibadan
By Samuel Ogunsona
Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi will this Saturday, 5th meet with hundreds of Pan Yoruna groups.
The time is from 10.00 am on Saturday at Ibadan.
He is to address the Pan Yoruba groups under the auspices of South West Development Stakeholders Forum (SWDSF)
A statement obtained by Irohinoodua said Obi will be following in the footsteps of the Presidential Candidates of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Adewole Adebayo of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Mr. Omoyele Sowore of Africa Action Congress (AAC), and Alhaji Kola Abiola of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), who have in the last two weeks dialogued with representatives of civil society organisations, religious bodies, Diaspora organisations, Town Development Unions, Chambers of Commerce, Hunters and Farmers groups, Market Women and Men, under the aegis of the South West Development Stakeholders Forum (SWDSF).
The SWDSF, a non-partisan advocacy platform for integrated South West Development is asking leading Presidential Candidates, “How would you lift ‘federal’ obstacles to South West integrated Security, Railways and Waterways, Power infrastructure, and environmentally sustainable exploitation of our Mineral Resources if you get to power?”
This question is of priority interest to over 50 million people and residents of the South West and emanates from Blueprints produced by the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN), a non-partisan Commission jointly owned by Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Ekiti and Osun states.
