Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections has explained his recent ‘private visits’ to key leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Those visited included former vice president and presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar; former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and former Jigawa State governor, Sule Lamido

Obi’s recent visits to these leaders have sparked curiosity about the future strategies of Nigeria’s major opposition parties in preparation for the upcoming 2027 general elections.

However, explaining why he visited the party leaders, hours after the separate meetings, Obi’s media aide, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, said “the state of the nation and the plight of the poor” inspired the visits.

Tanko said: “Mr. Peter Obi has continued to live up to his expressed commitment to the peace and progress of the nation.”

Aso, he added: “His abiding devotion is to the emergence of a Nigeria that works for all its peoples and where the people are quickly pulled out of poverty.”

Recall that Atiku first announced Obi’s visit on his X (Twitter) handle. He informed his followers that the former LP standard bearer paid him a visit. Atiku noted that he was always delighted to receive him.
