In the recently completed presidential election, the Labour Party's (LP) Peter Obi received a thunderous welcome on Saturday in Delta and Edo State.
The Labour Party candidate waved with a broad grin on his face as the crowd in Delta State went wild and kept chanting "Obi, Obi, Obi."
Obi, who finished a distant third in the election on February 25, stopped in Delta and Edo States to express his gratitude to his supporters.
The PDP-controlled states of Delta and Edo gave the most votes to the Labour Party's presidential candidate.
Despite the fact that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Atiku's deputy, is from the state, he received more than 150,000 more votes in Delta than Atiku.
Crowds gathered on either side of the road in a way reminiscent of the campaign season as Obi waved to them from an open-roof car.
A sizable crowd applauded Obi when he passed through the state.
Speaking about the two (2) visits, Peter Obi shared on his Twitter page and said, “I passed through Edo state today. I stopped by briefly to express my profound gratitude to the OBIdients for their support and asked them to extend same to the Governorship and House of Assembly candidates.”
Also, he said in another tweet, “I'm passing through Delta State- a propitious moment to say a big thank you to the Delta OBIdients for remaining steadfast.”
