“You can hold me accountable” — Obi tells supporters in Rivers

The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has urged supporters to hold him accountable.

He stated this during a campaign rally in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Thursday, asking supporters to keep a record of his promises.

“When we come to a rally, please, put your phone on and listen to what we are promising. Tape it (put it on record) so that tomorrow when we start telling you that they manipulated us, you can push us out,” he told the crowd at the Liberation Stadium.

According to the former Anambra State governor, elected public officeholders don’t have to give excuses for their inability to fulfill their promises.

At the event, the musical duo of Peter and Paul, better known as P-Square, thrilled the crowd.

After the rally, Obi, who was accompanied by his wife, Margaret, and other party leaders, embarked on a road walk. A chieftain of the LP, Pat Utomi, said the move was to show the party’s candidate is in touch with the people.

“It is about a 10-kilometer walk. [We are] talking to the people, shaking hands, holding babies, and feeling the people.

“We challenge every other person who is running to come and do the same. Touch the people, feel the people and serve the people,” Utomi added.
