No fewer than 35,000 citizens of Nasarawa state have come out to drum support for peter obi, the Labour party’s nominee for president, as the general election of 2023 approaches.
The State Chairman of the party, Alexander Emmanuel, said the people of the state were tired of the misrule of the All Progressives Congress-led government both at the national and state levels, which was why they decided to support the presidential candidate of the labour party in 2023. He was speaking at a town hall meeting with stakeholders of the Labour party and leaders of various support groups for Peter Obi on Saturday in Lafia.
Emmanuel clarified that the party’s 35,000 supporters were spread over the state’s 13 Local Government Areas in 27 registered support organisations.
He disclosed that on August 6, 2022, the party, in collaboration with the support groups, will organise a one million-person march to encourage other state citizens to support Peter Obi and other party candidates in the general election of 2023.
“As we speak today, Nigeria is in a critical predicament,” he declared. Existential threats are a problem we must deal with. Nigeria is currently dealing with a wide range of issues, including severe poverty, instability, unemployment, and blackouts of energy. Therefore, we the residents of residents drum support for Peter.
These issues are man-made rather than natural. The nation was brought to its knees by the previous and present guardians of our shared heritage, who also put us in the pitiful position we are in right now.
“Nigeria needs a leader who would turn things around for the better in 2023, and I boldly assert that only Peter Obi has what it takes to lead the country forward among the presidential contenders of all the political parties. Nasarawa residents drum support for Labour party.
But Obi can’t handle it by himself. I’m pleading with all Nasarawa state people to join us in the fight for a better Nigeria because he will need our combined support to win the presidency in 2023.
Wilson Kingsley, one of the support group organisers who spoke on behalf of the others, said they had finalised plans to launch a door-to-door sensitization campaign throughout the state’s 13 LGAs as soon as official campaigns began.
Peter Obi expressed confidence that the Labour party presidential candidate and other party candidates will win the 2023 elections while urging other state people to back his aspiration.
Ladi Iliya, the national deputy chairman of the party, asked state citizens who did not yet have permanent voter cards to register by the deadline of July 31st, 2022, so they may exercise their right to vote in 2023.
Because we don’t have capable leaders in place, Nigeria faces several difficulties. Even though our universities have been closed for several months, they are not concerned because their kids are studying abroad. It’s really sad.
“The Independent National Electoral Commission’s assurance that our votes will be counted in 2023 makes me delighted, nevertheless. Therefore, I am pleading with all Nigerians who have not yet obtained their Permanent Voter Cards to do so as soon as possible so that we can elect competent leaders in the upcoming elections “she declared.
The crowd kept chanting: Peter Obi for president! Peter Obi for president!! Peter Obi for president!!! Peter Obi for president!!!
