By our reporter| The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi on Saturday hailed a newly-wedded couple who joined thousands of party supporters in Abuja for a rally in support of his 2023 presidential bid.
In a video shared on his official Twitter handle, the couple could be seen in their wedding attire marching in solidarity with other labour party supporters.
“Salute and congratulations to this newly wedded couple in Abuja, whose special day coincided with the Obidient Family March in Abuja; and they marched too!” the presidential candidate tweeted.
“Wishing you both a blissful and happy married life and children, who will grow up in a united, secure, and productive Nigeria.”
Thousands of supporters of Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, staged a peaceful rally in Abuja on Saturday.
The pro-Obi supporters marched from the Unity Fountain to the Moshood Abiola National Stadium amid heavy security.
At the rally alongside the pro-Obi supporters are officers of the Nigeria Police Force and the Federal Road Safety Corps.
The supporters are making a statement that Obi and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, have physical structures beyond social media.
A recent poll commissioned by the Anap Foundation and conducted by NOI Polls described the February poll as a three-horse race, with Obi leading the race with 21 percent of votes in the poll.
However, the poll has been dismissed by the APC, PDP and other parties in the race for Aso Rock.
