Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate has paid a visit to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom shortly after the PDP stalwart returned from his visit to the United States.
Recall that Ortom recently returned to the country after his visit to the States where he urged the American government and other international communities to hold the government of President Muhammadu Buhari responsible for the insecurity plaguing the country.
The former governor visited Ortom in his private residence in Abuja on Wednesday, July 20th, 2022, Naija News reports.
Speaking during the visit, Ortom urged presidential candidates of the various political parties for next year’s general election to put Nigeria first above personal interests.
He said Nigerians were in dire need of people with “commitment and competence” that would fix the leadership crisis that has plunged the country into outright chaos.
The governor noted that Obi was among the qualified Nigerians and the people were looking forward to having him take the country out of the leadership conundrum.
He went on to praise Obi for engaging Nigerians, especially major players in the country’s politics, irrespective of political leaning on his desire to serve as the country’s next president.
