The Peter Obi Support Network (PSON) has charged Nasir El-rufai, the governor of Kaduna State, with blocking a meeting in the North to support Peter Obi.
The Labour Party (LP) candidate’s supporters intended to use the well-known Arewa House on Rabah Road.
The POSN bemoaned being the victim of power abuse in a statement on Monday.
The spokesman, Sani Saeed Altukry said the venue’s manager “called to notify that we cannot have Peter/Datti Northern Summit in Arewa House”.
Noting that the programme was scheduled for Tuesday, Altukry said no reason was given for the refusal.
“The governor issued a directive cancelling the use of the venue after the group had paid for its use.
“The decision is disheartening at the critical point when Northern Nigerians are desperate for development and liberation from poverty.”
Altukry added that “the Peoples Movement which Peter Obi represents” will not bow to “intimidation aimed at suppressing the liberation of the North”.
The POSN charged “all oppressed Nigerians and everyone that desires good governance” to keep their spirits high ahead of the 2023 elections.
