By Uangbaoje Alex, Kaduna
Supporters of Labour Party’s Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi and his Vice, Ahmed Datti, on Wednesday stormed markets in Kaduna State to distribute Aprons and Stickers as part of strategy to sensitize traders on how to vote and create awareness about their principal.
The group which came up under the auspice of Nigeria Youths in Diaspora Coalition (NYDC), vowed to ground Kaduna on Saturday with their planned OBIDATTI one million-man rally, after a successful visit to Sabo Tasha and Station markets.
Team Lead of the group, Jemima Ebiega, said high number of young men and women from across the state have already showed interest in coming out massively to grace the rally.
She noted that the crowd at the rally would shock those mocking and challenging them to dare to hold a rally for OBIDATTI in the state.
Kaduna State governor, Nasir el-Rufai, had through a twitter post while reacting to a tweet from one supporter of Peter Obi, @ZamarOmar who wrote “Kaduna Two Million March for Peter Obi”, said the proposed 2 million-man march in Kaduna for Peter Obi is only a daydream as the chances of getting 200 supporters for the march is not certain.
But this Ebiega, said would shock the governor because people from all tribes and religion are tired of the current situation in the country and are ready for a new Nigeria with OBIDATTI.
“The responses from traders and others here in the market is very encouraging, you can see that everyone is clamouring for a change, they all want a new Nigeria with a better economy and security and only Peter Obi can deliver that and I can assure you we are going to deliver Kaduna for OBIDATTI come 2023.
“People are already tired, the economy is harsh on the people and virtually all Kaduna residents have been grossly affected in a way or the other with insecurity problem in the State”. She said.
A 75 year old woman, Mrs Ojoma Onalu, who was optimistic that Obi, would bring about the needed change in Nigeria, laments that under the current government, most Nigerians are now living from hand to mouth without any hope of improvement.
She therefore called on every Nigerian to vote Peter Obi, noting that he has the capacity to return the country back on track.
On her part, LP, Women Leader Sabo ward, Mrs Pauline Ezekiel said the party’s presidential candidate would bring the required change the poor have been clamouring for in Nigeria, and to that with the responses from the Nigeria people, it is obvious that they are ready to vote for OBIDATTI ticket.
Mr. Nwonsu Peter, a trader, who left his shop to join the group noted that it is high time Nigerian youths stand up for the survival of their country, because they have been deceived severally.
“I joined this group because I believe Peter Obi is the only president that can save Nigeria from sinking”. He said.
