The 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi caused some stir when he announced he would be visiting Egypt for three days to understudy some of their achievements in power generation and other areas.

The LP Presidential candidate disclosed that the visit to Egypt is part of his detailed study of comparable countries to Nigeria to understudy the country’s power, education, planning and finance sectors

Taking to his Twitter account on Tuesday, June 14, Obi wrote: “I just departed for Egypt on a 3-day visit as part of my detailed study of comparable countries to Nigeria.

“In Egypt, I am expected to understudy, among others, the Egyptian Power Sector, Education, Planning and Finance Sectors.”

The announcement didn’t go down well with some stakeholders in the Nigerian politics who felt rather than travel at this time, Obi should be consolidating with supporters and strategizing with his party on how to win the 2023 elections.

Some others also agreed with him and submitted that there is nothing wrong with his decision to travel.

However, amidst the backlashes and stirs, Doyin Okupe, Director General of Peter Obi’s Campaign Organisation, stated that the 3-day tour was already planned before the presidential primaries for political parties began.

Okupe via his Facebook page on Wednesday insisted that Obi’s tour was a good one for the country’s energy sector.

He stated via his Facebook page: “Peter Obi’s trip has been scheduled previously, even before primaries. His mission principally is to see the plants installed by Siemens, which doubled the generating capacity of Egypt in 4years. To hold talks directly with the company on what will be feasible for Nigeria and at what cost?”

Naija News has now obtained some photos of Obi during his travel tour.

The photos show him interacting with the top executives and engineers of the New Capital Power Plant in New Cairo, Egypt. The plant currently generates 4800 megawatts of electricity.
