But I can confirm to you now that the December 2nd date is sure and conclusive”, he said.
The announcement on Senator Obanikoro’s official Facebook Page reads:
“Good afternoon all,
In the light of latest developments of a scheduled Presidential Visit by His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan GCFR to the South-West and most pressingly, the decision by INEC to resume the issuance of the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) in areas like Alimosho, Agege, Epe etc, the Koro Campaign Organisation (KCO) has decided to postpone my official declaration for the Governorship of Lagos State to December 2nd, 2014 at the National Stadium, Surulere (8AM – 1PM).
Apologies to all of you who were already excited and anxious to attend the event this Friday. Don’t worry, we shall begin our historical journey together next Tuesday, God willing. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you there!”
