Peter Obi movement shuts down Kebbi state, seeks 150 million votes
Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, conducted a town hall gathering on Monday in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, to win over local voters and bolster the Obi/Datti movement’s campaign.
The National Secretary of the Labour Party (LP), Umar Faruk Ibrahim, Kebbi state officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), youth movements for Obi, and candidates of the Labour Party and their executives all attended the gathering, which was attended by a sizable number of followers from various tribes and religions.
The event’s chief host, who also happens to be the state chairman of the NLC for Kebbi, said that the party has come to save Nigerians from the current status of the country and that LP is a member of the NLC.
He added that the party knows nothing of religion or tribe because it is a member of organized labor.
Comrade Umar Halidu welcomed the party’s national leaders and told them that his chapter will back the Obi/Datti struggle in Kebbi state.
In his speech, Ibrahim said that they were in Kebbi to sensitize the people of the state on the need for them to vote for the right candidate noting that what is happening in the country knows no religion or tribe “so people should close ranks and vote the right person not minding his religion or tribe ” we are happy with the reception we received in Kebbi and it shows Labour Party is alive in Kebbi, we saw Igbos, Hausas, and other tribes.
On what Peter Obi will do differently, the LP national scribe said Obi’s government if elected will, first of all, stabilize the country and ensure there is a responsible government in place for all Nigerians devoid of nepotism, saying when that is achieved everything will settle including the economy, security and all other sectors in the country will breathe in life.
He explained that out of the 89million votes expected, LP will take at least 70% to 80℅ which means victory “we need a country where every citizen will sleep with his eyes open, a country where every child will go to school rich or poor families.”
