The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has appealed to his counterparts in other parties to suspend their campaigns to honour victims of flood across the country.
Obi made the appeal during a visit to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State at his Abuja private residence to commiserate with him over the flood disaster in his domain.
He called on Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, amongst others to join him to help victims of floods in the country.
Obi said he expected other presidential candidates to show concern for the plight of victims of flooding, considering how millions were spent on nomination forms alone.
The former Anambra governor vowed to fix Nigeria’s challenges if he wins the 2023 presidential poll and becomes the country’s President.
On his part, Ortom encouraged Nigerians to go into the 2023 general elections with the mindset of electing the best presidential candidate among the top hopefuls.
According to Ortom, Nigeria currently runs on oxygen and would need a hands-on and detribalised leader to restore hope, development and progress.
Video Of Atiku In Paris Hotel Emerges Amidst Speculations Of Ill Health
A video of the PDP presidential candidate has emerged online following claims that the former Vice President collapsed and was flown out for treatment.
However, the spokesman of the PDP presidential council, Dino Melaye on Wednesday, took to his social media page to share a video of Atiku at a Paris Hotel chatting and laughing with some of the party chieftains.
Those spotted with him include Melaye, a former member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, and the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu.
The politicians were captured laughing over the fake news of Atiku’s collapse. Dino was heard making a mockery of those peddling the rumours of Atiku’s ill health stating that he is hale and hearty.
He captioned the video: “See President in waiting by the grace of God dinning peaceful. Every lie has an expiry date”
