Also speaking on the same note of enthusiasm, the Labour Party governorship candidate in the state, Hon. Chijioke Edeoga boasted that the state is entirely for Obi.

Speaking to a mammoth crowd who came to show him solidarity, the former Anambra State governor who is currently the front runner in the next month’s presidential poll encouraged his supporters to jettison politics of tribalism and religion, noting that the presidency is nobody’s turn but it is rather the turn of Nigerians to take their country back from the corrupt politicians who have held the people down all this while.

The campaign carnival witnessed some of the bests in the Nigerian entertainment industry perform to the admiration of the intimidating crowd of Obi/Datti supporters.

In a performance with which he held the audience spell bound, a top comedian, Klint De Drunk threw a comedy punk at the direction of the Presidential Campaign spokesperson of the party, Bar. Kenneth Okonkwo who he told that he was Living in Bondage until called by Peter Obi.
