Peter Obi Goes North, Meets Northern Elders Forum Chairman
Peter Obi has stressed the importance of consultation with stakeholders.
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, took his campaign a bit farther into Northern Nigeria by meeting the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi.
Peter Obi who also visited the hometown of vice presidential candidate Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed told journalists after the visit: “I came to get blessings and fatherly advice as well as discuss some political issues with the elder statesman. This is in view of his position especially in the north and his persistent agitation for good democratic leadership in the country.”
The former Anambra State governor further noted that his discussion with the Northern elder was hinged on making Nigeria a productive nation again.
“Because right now the country is not productive, Nigerians are in hunger, they are jobless and are looking for a new life. Despite the vast and abundant farmlands in the north, Nigerians are still hungry as we continue to depend on oil, thereby abandoning one of the most important natural resources,’’ Peter Obi said.
“We must come together and make Nigeria a new nation, a productive nation that can work well for all of us.”
