Supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, on Saturday took to the streets of Ibadan, Abeokuta and Nnewi in solidarity with the LP flagbearer ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
In Ibadan, Oyo State, Obi’s supporters converged at Iwo road defying the rain to participate in a 9 kilometer walk to Dugbe.
Similarly, in Ogun state, ‘Obidients’ as Obi supporters are called, gathered at the popular Kuto market in Abeokuta marching through major streets before terminating at the Panseke market.
The situation was no different in Nnewi, Anambra State, as supporters of LP candidate closed their shops to participate in the ‘million-man march’ which started at Amaobi Otolo.
Last week, supporters of the LP candidate occupied major streets of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, to show solidarity for Obi’s candidacy in the 2023 general elections.
A similar scene was witnessed in Makurdi, Benue State, Enugu, Enugu State, and Onitsha, Anambra State.
A previous rally scheduled for Kaduna was disrupted by police officers allegedly acting on the orders of Governor Nasir El-Rufai, according to a member of the Obi-Datti Campaign Organization, Nana Sani-Kazaure.
