Over 150 support groups, Saturday, converged in Abuja, in support of the presidential ambition of the Labour Party candidate, Mr Peter Obi and his running mate, Dr Ahmed Datti.
The support groups include Peter Obi Volunteers Electioneering Team (POVET) , I Stand With Obi Datti (ISWOD), Nigeria Youth for Peter Obi (NYFPO), Credible Leadership Support Group, Peter Obi Presidential Support Group, Peter Obi Baba Ahmed Success Movement, Obi-dient Youth Movement, Obi-DUCTION, Central Peter Obi 10 Million Gang, among others.
The supporters with over 5,000 members, including youth, men and women from different backgrounds, turn out for the Labour Party Town Hall meeting, organised by the FCT chapter of the party.
Speaking with journalists, chairman Labour Party, FCT, Chuckwuemeka Peter, said the meeting was the decision of the party leadership for all zones to converge with a view of getting acquaintances with all Obi/Datti support groups.
He said the meeting was to also mobilise all the lovers of Obi/Datti who desire change to go out and register with the Labour Party in preparation for the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
“What we are doing today is an internal affair, we are not campaigning. We are gathered here today to familiarise ourselves with all the Peter Obi/Datti support groups. In this hall, we have over 150 support groups from all the six area councils in FCT.
“You can see for yourself that the Obi/Datti support base is beyond social media as is been speculated. This is a movement that is yearning for change in Nigeria.”
