The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, were notably missing, as President Muhammadu Buhari took his presidential campaign to Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
There is no official reason for their absence, Channels Television reports.
The rally which took place at the Eagles Square, saw the FCT Minister, Mohammed Bello and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, in attendance.
Others in attendance included the APC Women Leader, (Hajia) Salamatu Umar-Eluma and the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, among others.
All campaign rallies are expected to end is 24 hours to the presidential elections.
In April 2007, after the elections but before the new governor had taken over, the Federal Government brought Asiwaju Bola Tinubu before the Code of Conduct Tribunal for trial over the alleged illegal operation of 16 separate foreign accounts.
In January 2009, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission cleared Bola Tinubu and governors James Ibori of Delta State and Obong Victor Attah of Akwa Ibom State of charges of conspiracy, money laundering, abuse of office and official corruption in relation to a sale of V-mobile network shares in 2004.
In September 2009, however, there were reports that the British Metropolitan Police were investigating a transaction in which the Lagos State government made an investment in Econet (now Airtel). Bola Tinubu said the transaction was straightforward and profitable to the state, with no intermediaries involved. The Federal Government rejected a request by Britain to release evidence needed for further investigation and prosecution of the three Nigerian ex-governors in a London court.
In March 2009, there were reports that a plot had been identified to kill Chief Bola Tinubu. The Alliance for Democracy called on the Inspector General of Police, Mike Okiro, to conduct a thorough investigation.
