The highly antipcated Independence Day was observed in the commercial city of Warri and Asaba Delta State capital on Saturday mainly by Labour Party faithful called Obidients.
The Obidients adorning the green-white-green national colour were seen rallying all over the metropolis in support of the 2023 Presidential aspiration of Mr Peter Obi.
As early as 8 o’clock in the morning, the supporters drawn from various communities had mobilized at the popular Inter Bua Asaba and in Effurun Roundabout, singing solidarity songs, from where they marched out in motorcades.
In Warri it took them to Airport road enroute Warri City Stadium, where they were addressed by party leaders on the importance of their active involvement in the forthcoming general elections by voting rightly.
The supporters under the aegis of Delta State Alliance for Peter Obi Movement insisted that “A new Nigeria is possible” with good leadership.
They carried assorted placards with inscriptions such as “We need Nigeria refining her own crude oil and producing her own products”, “We say no to insecurity, corruption, ASUU Strike”, “Employing Graduates and not turning them to Keke/Okada riders”, “Nigeria must celebrate Education as key to economic development”, and “A vote for Peter Obi is a vote for better Nigeria”, among others.
