2023: Peter Obi Supporters Meet in Kebbi; Promise to give him 150 Million Votes
Teeming supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi on Monday held a town hall meeting in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi state to woo voters in the state and further strengthen the campaign of Obi/Datti movement.
