Lagos State from the “bondage” of the All Progressives Congress (),
which has ruled the state since the inception of the fourth republic in

He asked the people not to vote for APC during the rescheduled
general elections but to cast their votes for all the Peoples Democratic
Party () candidates contesting elections, so as to be free from
APC’s alleged 16 years of oppression.

The President said this yesterday when a group of market women in the
state paid him solidarity visit at the State House, Marina, Lagos.
Jonathan promised the market women that a PDP-led administration in
the state would provide the enabling environment for traders to do
business without hindrance.
Jonathan commended the women for supporting his re-election bid and
urged them not to be intimidated by the opposition, saying, “I have
listened to you; you have been carrying the PDP flag; you have been
humiliated but you still marched on.
Thank you for working hard for PDP. This is the final struggle and the time for us to use all our strength to achieve victory.”
Earlier, the leader of the visiting team, Hajia Aminat Hussein, had
told Jonathan that they had stood by the PDP since its inception but
regretted that the members suffered harassment under the APC-led
government in the state.
