In his speech tagged Wind Of Change, the public relations officer, Mr. Lanre Ogundare, urged the people to vote for the party as it is out for a change, while its candidates are all young and dynamic professionals who are ready to serve the people better.
Present at the rally were party members and candidates, among who was a chairmanship hopeful for Agbado-Oke Odo Local Council Development Area, Mr. Adeniyi Adu, who implored the people of the area to vote en masse for the party.
