Nigerians from different parts of the United Kingdom (UK), gathered in London on Saturday to celebrate Nigeria’s 62nd Independence Anniversary and march in support of Peter Obi.
The march was organized by the Peter Obi Presidential Global Network (PPGN).
Speaking after the rally, the Coordinator of the group, Dr. Michael Chukwujekwu said about 20 different groups collaborated to organize the rally.
Chukwujekwu said that the supporters came together under the UK Support Groups Coalition for Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti-Ahmed.
He said the supporters came from England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Scotland.
“We marched through the major streets of London to Trafalgar Square, Nigeria High Commission, and 10 Downing Street.
“October 1 is remembered for our independence from colonial rule and the rally that followed was to ensure that at her 62 years, a credible election is organized in Nigeria come 2023.
“We also used the opportunity to galvanize support for our presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who demonstrated verifiable capabilities, capacity, and public trust with management of public resources.
“It may not be mere coincidence that Nigeria is 62 years old today, and Peter Obi will be 62 years old come 2023, a year of the general election.
“Obi does not have an egocentric character and he can rescue Nigeria from its challenges. He has the capacity for productivity, strength, and ability, and he is wanted by the majority of Nigerians,” Chukwujekwu said.
He noted that public opinion polls so far conducted ranked him the most popular candidate for the job.
“Nigeria will be united, productive, economics and social amenities, as well as infrastructure, will work again if Obi emerges.
“Education system will work again. There will be employment and security.
“Mineral resources will be better developed and managed, while power and electricity will be available and sustainable,” he added.
