The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has berated a court ruling on Wednesday which banned Labour Party and supporters of its presidential candidate, Peter Obi from converging at Lekki Toll-Gate, Lagos.
A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos State had banned the Obi supporters popularly known as Obidients from converging at the Toll Gate.
The Obidients had scheduled ObiDatti23 Forward Ever Rally to be held on October 1, 2022 in Lagos. They planned to converge at the facility before proceeding to other places.
In his judgement, Justice Daniel Osiagor said the LP supporters can pass through the facility for its rally but must not converge there.
While reacting to the judgement, Sowore in a post on his official social media handles, said it was disappointing that a judge could give such an order.
He wrote, “It is completely wrong for anyone to have gone to court to stifle a legitimate political gathering by @PeterObi supporters at #Lekkitollgate and equally dangerous that a judge gave an order stopping the gathering.
“It is a matter of time before a crazy injunction is granted that opposition groups can’t campaign in @OfficialAPCNg stronghold. I totally condemn these acts”.
