“Thousands of supporters gather in Abuja for a march in support of Peter Obi”

“On Saturday, supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), marched in Abuja in a show of support for his candidacy. Under the banner of the growing “Obidient Movement,” thousands of supporters marched from the Unity Fountain in the Central Business District to the City Gate near the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport road, carrying posters of Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, and wearing branded vests.

In a tweet, Obi expressed his gratitude for the demonstration of support and wished a newly-wed couple who participated in the march a happy marriage. The LP National Chairman, Julius Abure, noted that the large turnout at the Abuja rally was not surprising, as the party has a “people-oriented” candidate in Obi. Abure also stated that the party is funded by its supporters and expressed confidence in their sustained support during the campaign.

According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the official start of political campaigns for all parties is set for September 28, 2023.”

A recent poll commissioned by the Anap Foundation and conducted by NOI Polls Limited described the February poll as a three-horse race, noting that Obi is leading the race with 21 percent of the votes in the poll.

However, the poll has been dismissed by the APC, PDP, and other parties in the race for Aso Rock.

A PDP former presidential aspirant, Mohammed Hayatu-Deen, had said it will take a miracle for Obi to win the 2023 presidential election.

Also, the presidential candidate of the Action Democratic Party, Yabagi Sani, had said Obi is making “a lot of motion without movement”, adding that the former Anambra State governor cannot win 25% of votes in 24 states across the Federation in the 2023 presidential election. channelstv stated
