Sule Urges Obi To Support Tinubu In Nigeria’s Interest


Gov Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State (L) and Sir Peter Obi (R) exchange pleasantries as others watch.

Sir Peter Obi, Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, was on Monday urged to support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to succeed. Abdullahi Sule, Nasarawa State governor, made this appeal on Monday when Obi visited him in Lafia, the state capital.

The governor maintained that elections were over, adding that the president alone could not address the challenges confronting the nation.

He said Tinubu needed all the necessary support, pointing out that well-meaning citizens like Obi could contribute to bring the country back on track.

Said Sule: “I know you have the experience, competence and capacity to support the president in the overall interest of the country.

“The president is your friend and colleague, we were all in Lagos at some point, and as such you need to contribute your quota to the development of the country”.

The governor praised Obi for drilling boreholes in some communities in the state, noting that the gesture complemented the government’s efforts to alleviate people’s suffering.

Speaking earlier, Obi said the visit was part of his nationwide tour to provide support to Nigerians during Ramadan.

Stated Obi: “I am not desperate to be president of this country, but I am desperate to see Nigeria work for the good of all.

“I always commend people when they do well because politics to me is not about being negative every time”.

Obi commended Sule for constructing new roads in the state, which he said gave it a new appearance.
