Residents of Sokoto could not contain their excitement as the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, stormed the state for his campaign rally.
Peter Obi, his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, and other members of the party’s presidential campaign team arrived in Sokoto for a rally today, Wednesday
As part of their programme, the team paid a courtesy visit to the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III before going to the campaign ground.
Peter Obi has continued to change the narrative that northerners will not vote for an Igbo man or other political party aside from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In the video obtained by DAILY GIST on Wednesday, Sokoto residents were seen showing massive support for the LP flagbearer as they chanted his name, ‘Sai Obi!,Sai Obi!!’.
The residents were also seen jumping and shouting in excitement before the former Governor of Anambra State dropped from his car to join them.
