He urged them to sustain the tempo by voting all the candidates of the party in the Saturday, March 18, state House of Assembly and governorship elections across the state.

Obi, who made this call when he paid a ‘Thank you’ visit to the state, moved with his convoy from the New Benin Market through Mission Road to Sapele Road before terminating at Adesuwa Road, where he addressed a large crowd of supporters.

He urged the supporters to complete what they had started on February 25 by voting en masse for Labour Party candidates in the March 18 elections, adding that a movement that can not be stopped had commenced.

He said,” I must urge the Labour Party supporters not to be discouraged by the outcome of the presidential election.

“Nigeria must not be allowed to remain the way it is. There must be a paradigm shift from the present state to a better and prosperous Nigeria

“We have begun the journey of a new Nigeria. The movement is real, and nobody can stop it. We will not allow Nigeria to remain the way it is. We will continue to vote for the Labour Party,” Obi said.

He said a retreat would be organised for all the victorious candidates of the Labour Party to teach them what to do in the quest to change the political narratives of the country.

The national chairman of the party, Julius Abure, said the candidates for the House of Assembly election in Edo State had not stepped down for anyone and that no Labour Party candidate was being sponsored by any other party.

He appealed to the residents of the state to come out en masse to vote for candidates of the party to secure victory.

Earlier, the state chairman of the party, Kelly Agbaloi, thanked the presidential candidate, and the national chairman for visiting the state adding that their presence had further given a boost to all the ‘Obidient’ supporters in the state.
