Ahead of the 2023 general elections, supporters of the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi and his running mate, Dr Ahmed Yusuf Datti, have announced they would begin a car rally with 100 cars across the thirty-six states of Nigeria.
The political group popularly known as the ‘Obidents’ declared on Monday that it would begin the automobile convoy rally in Ebonyi State.
Naija News reports that the Southeast Regional Coordinator of the Obi Datti Car-rally support group and its Ebonyi State Coordinator, Comrade Ozurumba Chimezie Jeff, disclosed this during a chat with newsmen yesterday in Abakaliki.
He revealed that the rally would be a 100km car drive and would be done on the 19th, 26th of November and 3rd of December 2022, across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
Jeff noted that the target was to get everyone involved in the mission to rescue Nigeria from bad governance.
He said, “The Obi-Datti car rally will be on an automobile convoy and not be on foot. This would create a hitch-free campaign, devoid of human traffic and congestion.”
Ozurumba explained, “This has become necessary because the event would be happening simultaneously across the 36 States in the country, the FCT, and southeast Nigeria.
“Obi-Datti Car-rally is dedicated to the Peter Obi and Ahmed Datti campaign organization, which is aimed at sensitizing and creating awareness for people to vote for Mr. Peter as the most qualified candidate to become the president of our great nation Nigeria come 2023.
“We believe in his proven capacity and credibility as a leader with a sound mind who possesses the required qualification to tackle the current challenges facing our nation. No doubt, these issues have made us to be going backwards instead of moving forward as a people.”
The coordinator said the press can relate well with them when they say that the security situation of Nigeria at the moment is nothing to write home about.
“You all know that our economy is visibly in shambles. The price of things has continued to go up, and people are hungry. No better business opportunities and no better employment opportunities. Our production level is nothing to write home about. We keep importing almost everything we consume and depend on other nations to survive. Our education system, health care, and innovation sectors are all deprived of competent and quality leadership, yet, we are the giant of Africa,” the Obidient coordinator for Ebonyi said.
