Some supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Saturday (today) staged a rally in Nsukka, Enugu State.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the youths came out in large numbers for the rally which started at about 10:am at the popular Total Roundabout close to the main entrance of the University of Nigeria Nsukka.
One of the organisers told our correspondent that the police in Nsukka wanted to stop the rally from holding.
The source confirmed that the police asked them not to print T-shirts bearing the face of the former Governor of Anambra State who just yesterday unveiled Yusuf Baba-Ahmed as his running mate.
According to the source, the police demanded that they organise the rally as a Permanent Voter Cards sensitization exercise.
However, the source stated that the police later approved the rally to take place but with many restrictions.

VANTAGE NEWS reports that this is one of many rallies organised by young Nigerians across the country for Obi since he emerged as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party.
Obi dumped the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party weeks to the party’s presidential primary, citing activities that do not align with his principles.
