A video showing the moment the presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, received a standing ovation and resounding cheers from congregants at The Experience 17 in Lagos, has been making the rounds on social media.
The former Anambra State Governor attended the Interdenominational Gospel concert founded by Pastor Paul Adefarasin, founder and Senior Pastor of House on the Rock on Friday, December 2, and was given a warm reception by the congregation.
The Experience, which debuted in December 2006 with over 70,000 persons in attendance, rapidly gained momentum at its second outing with a quantum leap in attendance of well over 700,000 people.
The Experience has now become the largest musical concert in Africa and attendance is free.

In his remarks, Peter Obi thanked the organisers for the successful event, while praying that God would hear the prayers of all the participants.
“I greatly enjoyed God’s presence at THE EXPERIENCE 17, yesterday in Lagos.
“I thank the organisers of the program, and everyone who contributed in making it a huge success. To the millions of people who participated in the program, both physically and virtually, may God hear our prayers for our nation and for ourselves. -PO,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, the vice presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, has challenged the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, to the political battlefield, if he’s sure he’s physically and mentally okay.
Baba-Ahmed said he’s not in the best position to say whether Tinubu is sick or not.
Baba-Ahmed made the remark while speaking at an Abuja press conference on Thursday, December 1.
