Obidients Shut Down Onitsha, In A Major Rally For Peter Obi

On Sunday, supporters of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Mr. Peter Obi organized a rally in the commercial hub of Onitsha, Anambra State, closing most of the city’s roadways in the process.

Around 11:30am, young men and women wearing white polo shirts with Obi’s photo and the name of his party began to congregate on Zik Avenue. From there, they spread out to other areas of the city.

The gathering calmly marched down most streets while carrying banners with pro-Obi messages. The march ended at the Chinua Achebe’s Stadium in Fegge, Onitsha.

Convener of the rally, Mr Chibuike Akpotue, who addressed supporters said: “We just want to show the world that Obi has our support, he was born in Onitsha, he grew up in Onitsha, his businesses are here. So, we decided today to show him solidarity because we were told he does not have structure, we want to tell them we are his structure.

“This is not about the Labour Party. The most important thing is that we want someone that can change the economy of this country. Since I graduated, I did not find any job to do and I went into business, which is not a bad idea.

“We know the amount it cost us to load one truck in 2010 and the amount it is costing now. We know the amount it costs us for the upkeep of our families before 2015 and the amount it is costing us now. So, no one can say that the economy is comfortable for him.

“We are looking for a person that can turn around the economy of this country for good and not a party. Check out Obi’s record as Anambra governor, you will see that he is the only governor that served eight years and yet never had any issue with the EFCC and he goes out without any escort.”

The protest, which some groups dubbed “Onitsha mega rally: The mother of all rallies,” caused traffic jams as fans of Obi screamed his praises throughout the arduous journey.
