JUST IN: Thousands of Obi Supporter Throng Abuja Streets for Peaceful Rally
By Ozumi Abdul
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.
Demonstrators had last week staged a peaceful rally in Ebonyi State, in Nigeria’s South-East, as well as other states across the Federation.
61-year-old Obi is a former governor of Anambra State contesting the 2023 presidential election alongside top contenders like Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party.
