“We want voters to come out and exercise their civic responsibility on Saturday and be free to vote for who they want
” Labour Party is leveraging on technology, the strength of the youth, and the brilliance of the candidacy of Mr Peter Obi, towards winning the election,” said
Ozigbo said that the Obidient Movement would adopt governorship and state assembly candidates across the country after victory in Saturday’s poll.
He added that the movement would carefully consider and extensively consult with stakeholders across the country before adopting governorship candidates.
