#Ibadan today was #PDPSouthWestRally and the mobilisation from the states of the SW was massive.

In order of size: my dearest Osun was number one. They were everywhere - seems the rivalry between Senator Ademola Adeleke and Akin Ogunbiyi is making them both work hard for Atiku.
Ogunbiyi brought in like ten campaign vehicles all branded for Atiku and filled with people. Demola Adeleke also brought huge numbers in buses and one particularly funny limousine branded in campaign colours.

Akogun Lere Oyewunmi was also massive everywhere, Peter Babalola too.
Osun took over #Ibadan as though it was their territory - I can comfortably predict that PDP will win Osun for Atiku massively and win at least two senatorial seats.

Even House of Assembly candidates like @faruqabbas mobilised down there for the #PDPSouthWestRally.
Oyo also proves they’re at home: the crowd was easily obviously for Seyi Makinde, Hon. Jumoke Akinjide was also visible everywhere with her mobilisation.

Take away home advantage though and I think Osun had the biggest crowd today for the rally - kudos again to my people.
Ogun was also not to be outdone - the controversy over who the party candidate is also brought out huge numbers via Kashamu and Ladi Adebutu - both men were onground and they came with huge crowds.

@Doaderinokun was also there I think, I saw his campaign vehicles. Well done Ogun
Ekiti I’ve seen larger crowds from you before but today was still impressive.

Same applies to Lagos - our contingent could have been bigger but still not bad at all.

Ondo was simply nowhere to be found: I doubt I saw any notable figure from that state, I could be wrong.
Our speakers onstage were all sound - the candidate was most impressive, accurately delivered his message and touched on everything.

Restructuring resonated with the crowd impressively, more than I expected: a good sign, we should drive this point home further henceforth.
Chairman Uche Secondus - I can’t get enough of this man: charismatic in a very simple kind of way but knows exactly how to tune into crowd emotions and draw them in.

I’ve seen him do it in Jigawa, now he’s done it in Osun: easily a campaign asset and #PDPSouthWestRally confirms.
Three more zonal rallies to go then the state by state rallies should start.

More work to be done by PDP especially in terms of messaging and what areas each speaker should focus on - Dino Melaye is a priceless asset also on the trail.

#PDPSouthWestRally was a success.
