The Peter Obi Support Network, POSN, has accused Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-rufai, of blocking the group’s plan to hold Northern Summit in support of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
THE WHISTLER gathered the group had long planned to hold the summit at the Arewa House in Kaduna State, on July 19, 2022.
The group’s Spokesman, Sani Altukry, explained that the summit was designed to interact with supporters of the presidential candidate and the running mate across the 19 northern states of the country.
He denied that the summit was a political campaign explaining that volunteers and would-be volunteers and supporters of the Obi-Datti project would converge for necessary interaction and cross-fertilisation of ideas.
However, a statement signed by Altukry on Monday, accused El-Rufai of instructing the Manager of Arewa House, not to allow them hold the summit at the venue, without giving any reason for his action.
He said the order to cancel the summit came from the governor after full payment had been made.
