The event started with BankyW and another artist opening with a musical interlude. Lagos was wet with light rain and cloudiness. Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria's Vice President addressed the crowd stating that the president will be back on a working visit to Lagos after Ramadan.

Osinbajo told the crowd that Akinwummi Ambode deserves our praise and support, calls Lagos state as economic nerve center of #Nigeria

He also said Lagos state has been ruled by the opposition party for years and now it's the same party as the ruling party and the state will receive more help. Buhari told him to tell every Lagosian that we are on the right path as a nation. NLC has decided to work with the government. 

He spoke about the railroads mentioning Lagos/Kano and Lagos/Calabar railroads starting in Lagos. Speaks on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. Says Raji Fashola will PERFORM as our Minister of Works. Fashola was also in the stadium.
