The Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi, has expressed the belief that a new Nigeria is possible after thousands of youths held rallies on Saturday as Nigeria marked her 62nd Independence.
Obi’s supporters who are known by the moniker OBIdients held rallies in Lagos, Kaduna, and Bauchi, amongst others, as well as in the United Kingdom and USA.
Reacting, he said, “Dear OBIdients, today will go down in history as a day Nigerians spoke with one united voice; the message is clear and simple – A NEW NIGERIA IS POSSIBLE!
“From Lagos, Bauchi, Benin City, Warri, Osogbo, Kaduna, Uyo, Aba, London, New York and many more,
“OBIdients made a bold statement with generally very peaceful rallies. The very young, and old men and women in their millions marched in solidarity and in support of our collective vision of a New Nigeria. I salute Nigerian Youths. I thank you all most sincerely, for your passion, resolve and resiliency. You have shown the world that Nigeria is ready for change, and that the majority are ready to lead the way.
“Thank you all for the sacrifices. Our labours shall never be in vain and there is no stopping us now. May Almighty God bless you all and bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
