The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has expressed appreciation to his supporters in Oyo after a successful rally in the state.
Obi in a statement via his Twitter account said he didn’t realize the rally was as big as it was until he watched a clip of the event.
He also singled out the leader of the Afenifere group, Pa Ayo Adebanjo for gracing the rally with his presence.
The LP candidate while appreciating all his supporters added that there is hope for Nigeria and he is sure a national rebirth is possible.
Taking to his Twitter account on Thursday, he wrote: “Thank you Oyo OBIdients for an awesome outing, and show of love yesterday. I have taken time to savour clips of the event, and I realised that the event was a lot bigger than I thought. Thanks a million, and I wish to reiterate my very special thanks to Pa Adebanjo, for the historical appearance. There is hope for a new Nigeria. A national rebirth is POssible! We are taking back Naija. Thank you all and God bless. -PO”
Why I Am Fighting Obi
The Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo has stated that there is nothing personal in the disagreement between him and the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
According to him, he and Obi are brothers and they speak with each other constantly.
He added that the alleged rift between them is just a disagreement on political ideologies which some people are trying to blow out of proportion, adding that they will soon meet to iron out their differences.
Naija News recalls Soludo in a recent article titled ‘History beckons and I will not be silent,’ said Obi is only playing a game and can’t win the 2023 presidency.
The submission drew mixed reactions from Nigerians and other stakeholders in the political landscape, attracting huge criticism for Soludo.
However, speaking on Thursday at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Awka, during the thanksgiving mass for Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor in celebration of his 70th birthday, Soludo said some mischievous persons are trying to cause a rift between him and Obi based on the article.
