Support groups, members of the Obedient family and the general public that the venue for the visit of our principal, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party H.E Peter Gregory Obi is now the Baptist Convention Ground, Oliha quarters, TV Road Benin City.
This is the last of the several efforts made by the party to access suitable venues under the direct and indirect control of the government but where all denied.
The only option now left for the party is the Baptist Convention Ground.
This is a clear indication that Labour Party is now a threat and the only party to beat in the state and Nigeria at large.
As a party therefore, we want to use this medium to appeal to our teaming supporters not to be deterred and discouraged as we are already taking over.
We want to also urge you to disregard the rumors making the round that our principal the presidential candidate of our great party Mr Peter Gregory Obi is no longer coming or that the date and time has been changed. These are lies fabricated by the opposition to distract the Obidient followers.
Peter Obi is coming live and direct to Edo state where he will make brief stop over in the three senatorial districts to terminate in Benin City.
Date is Friday the 11th November 2022
Venue is Baptist Convention Ground.
