Peter Obi’s wife joins him for Benue rally

Margaret Obi, wife of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi, joined her husband on Wednesday, November 9 for the party’s rally in Makurdi, Benue State.

Obi and his wife were dressed in branded attires with Obi and his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed’s images.

Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, announced their arrival via Twitter.

He posted photos of himself alighting from an airplane, and his wife speaking with Baba-Ahmed.

“I just arrived Makurdi for the Benue Rally,” he wrote.

In September, Obi celebrated his wife’s birthday with a lovely note posted on Twitter.

He said, “To my dearest wife and perfect mother to our beloved children, words alone cannot express how far I have come by your support, love and affection. Each moment shared with you renews my strength, brightens my ideas and sharpens my vision.

“As you celebrate your birthday today, I remain eternally grateful to God for the gift of you in my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in productivity and progress. May God continue to protect and bless you as we journey each day together. Happy Birthday to My One and Only Wife.”

Obi and Margaret tied the knot in 1992. They have two children, Oseloka and Gabriella.

Obi kick-started his nationwide campaign last month in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital in the North-Central geopolitical zone.

Director-general of Obi’s campaign council, Doyin Okupe, said the campaign train of the former governor will be massive across all the six geopolitical zones of the country.

According to Okupe, Obi and Baba-Ahmed will crisscross the length and breadth of Nigeria from Nasarawa State to meet with their supporters popularly known as ‘Obidients’ in all parts of the country.
