Veteran Nigerian actor-turned-politician and one of the Spokesperson of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign Council, Mr Kenneth Okonkwo, has reacted to the massive welcoming the people of Edo State gave the Labour Party presidential candidate in the state.
Recall that the former Anambra State Governor, had on Friday visited Edo State as part of his campaign rally for next year’s presidential election.
A large number of people showed up for the ex-governor.
The presidential candidate in a tweet said he was greatful for the reception.
While he was in the state, the Labour Party flag bearer visited the Oba of Benin.
Taking to his official Twitter page, the presidential campaign spokesperson said what the people did for the ex-governor was strange.
According to him, for the first time in the history of the state the people breached the security of the palace to follow the presidential candidate inside.
He, however, commended the palace security operatives for their professionalism in handling the incident.
He wrote, “This is strange. For the first time in the history of the Benin Kingdom, the people breached the security of the palace to follow Obi inside the palace. What a love!! We commended the palace security operatives for their professionalism in handling this amazing love for Obi.”
