The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday, January 31, 2019, rounded off its campaign in Ikorodu division with a mega rally held at the Ikorodu ferry Terminal at Ebute.
As expected, the event recorded a massive crowd of Chieftains, candidates and members of APC as well as supporters and residents across the division who had all come out enmases to show their support for the party.
Several candidates and chieftains of the party took their turns one after the other to address the electrifying crowed and appealed to them for their support and votes for all APC candidates in the coming elections.
