The Presidential Candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has taken his campaign to the Northern part of the country.
Obi, who has a large support base on social media visited the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after the visits, Obi said:
“I came to get blessings and fatherly advise 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.”
“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.
“We must come together and make Nigeria a new nation, a productive nation that can work well for all of us,” he said.
