Reactions have trailed a video of a newly wedded couple who got married on the same day a major rally was held in Abuja for Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

Under the aegis of the fast-growing ‘Obidient Movement’ thousands of supporters took to the streets of the city in support of Mr. Obi on Saturday, September 24.

The couple who are supporters of the former Anambra governor were hailed by patrons at the rally while others waved the flag of the Labour Party in excitement.

Many of the supporters who held the posters of the LP candidate and his vice, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, and had branded vests, marched from the Unity Fountain in the Central Business District to the City Gate leading to the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport road.

Mr Obi, in a tweet, expressed his delight at the action of his supporters and wished a newly wedded couple who participated in the exercise a fruitful union.

"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 -PO" he wrote.

Before the Abuja leg of the exercise, Mr Obi’s supporters had held similar rallies on the streets of the capitals of Ebonyi, Anambra, Bayelsa, Plateau, Nasarawa, Rivers, Imo, among others.
