A support group, Mr Peter Obi Liberation Team, on Saturday, held 1m match in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State Capital.
Members of the group who adorned themselves in face caps and T-shirt bearing Mr Obi’s picture and the Labour Party’s logo, matched round the major streets of Abakaliki metropolis.
The South-East zonal Coordinator of the Group, Dr Francis Orji, in an interview, told Journalists that Obi tsunami is blowing all over the country and there was need to generate the consciousness of Ebonyi people, hence, the solidarity match.
Orji said the near degeneration of governance in Nigeria that had resulted to rise in insecurity, collapse of economy, unemployment, banditry and collapse of the education system would be totally addressed if Mr Obi emerged the president of the country, come 2023.
According to him, Obi deserved to be supported, having promised to change Nigeria from consumption country to production country, noting that the major problem of Nigeria today is that “we borrow to pay debts.”
Orji expressed optimism that Mr Obi would emerged President of Nigeria, come 2023, adding that the essence of the solidarity match was to disprove those thinking that Obi’s supporters only exist on the social media.
He said the Nigerian State is suffering leadership failure, and Mr Obi’s presidency in 2023, would rescue the country.
