Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, conducted a town hall gathering on Monday in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, to win over local voters and bolster the Obi/Datti movement’s campaign.
The National Secretary of the Labour Party (LP), Umar Faruk Ibrahim, Kebbi state officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), youth movements for Obi, and candidates of the Labour Party and their executives all attended the gathering, which was attended by a sizable number of followers from various tribes and religions.
Speaking at the occasion, the chief host who is the state chairman of NLC Kebbi state said that, the party has come to rescue Nigerians from the current state of the nation, as he added that LP belongs to NLC.
He also stated that since the party belongs to organised labour, it, therefore, knows no religion and tribe.
In his speech, Ibrahim said that they were in Kebbi to sensitise the people of the state on the need for them to vote for the right candidate noting that what is happening in the country knows no religion or tribe “so people should close ranks and vote the right person not minding his religion or tribe” we are happy with the reception we received in Kebbi and it shows Labour Party is alive in Kebbi, we saw Igbos, Hausas and other tribes.
On what Peter Obi will do differently, the LP national scribe said Obi government if elected will, first of all, stabilise the country and ensure there is a responsible government in place for all Nigerians devoid of nepotism, saying when that is achieved everything will settle including the economy, security and all other sectors in the country will breathe in life.
