The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi continued his whistle-stop campaigns after conducting rallies in all the states with a visit on Tuesday to the Anambra industrial hub, Nnewi.
Obi who was warmly received by the community leaders, including their traditional ruler, Igwe Orizu 111 told the people that he has not come to campaign because Nnewi is already converted, but to tell them to try and convert others in this all-important project of rescuing our country.
The former Anambra state governor said that in all his political journeys, Nnewi has always fallen behind him massively and he’s therefore, certain about their support this time around.
He said that the town fits very well in the consumption-to-production policy of his manifesto because they are already producing and will therefore play a critical role if he is elected into office.
The high point of the Nnewi trip was the visit to the Palace of Nnewi king, Igwe Kenneth Onyeneke Orizu111, the traditional supreme ruler and Spiritual leader of the Nnewi Kingdom who publicly prayed for Obi and assured him of his blessing and support.
All the top red cap chiefs of the town and other leaders were on hand to receive the LP flag bearer and his team that included the former Minister of Finance, Nenadi Usman, a son of the soil, former speaker of Anambra state House of Assembly, and Director Of Mobilization in Obi-Datti Campaigns, Hon. Benchuks Nwosu and other leaders of the party.
As it has been in all the places he visited, an organic crowd of obedient supporters shut down the city chanting various support songs to show their solidarity for the project that he is leading.
