Peter Obi supporters in Abuja

A newly-wedded couple joined supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, at a mega rally in Abuja on Saturday.

In a viral video, the couple could be seen in their wedding attire marching in support of the former Anambra State governor.

The development attracted plaudits from supporters of the party and Mr Obi.

Tweeting from Kano where he went to visit the Emir Aminu Ado Bayero, Obi congratulated the couple.

He wrote, “Salute and congratulations to this newly wedded couple in Abuja, whose special day coincided with the Obidient Family March in Abuja; and they marched too!

“Wishing you both a blissful and happy married life and children, who will grow up in a united, secure, and productive Nigeria.”

The rally in Abuja has been described by many as the grandest among the rallies held across the country in support of Obi.

Hundreds of supporters marched from the Unity Fountain to the Moshood Abiola National Stadium.
