The Presidential Candidate of Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi on Friday visited the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi.
The former governor of Anambra State also took out time to visit the hometown of the party’s vice presidential candidate, Dr Yusuf Datti Baba Ahmed.
Obi giving the reason for his visit on Friday said he met with Abdullahi to seek his blessings and fatherly advice.
He further stated that he also discussed some political issues with the elder statesman.
Obi while addressing newsmen after the visit said, “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.”
Obi added that part of what was discussed was how to make Nigeria a productive nation.
He said, “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.”
