The Labour party (LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has postponed his 2023 Presidential campaign.
Obi disclosed this to Newsmen during his visit to the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
The former Anambra Governor postponed his campaign in order to help flood victims in the different parts of the Country.
Obi also called on the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) Rabiu Kwankwaso, amongst others, to halt their campaigns and help the flood victims.
He said; “I personally stopped and told my people no more campaign, until we are able to visit some of the sites, at least sympathise with those going through problems.’’
“I came to take permission and ask him (Ortom) that I want to visit some of the sites in Benue as I am going to do in one or two other States.’’
“I am also calling other presidential candidates to stop campaigning and see what we can do.’’
“If we can buy our forms for millions of naira, we should have some little thing to go, now that people are suffering, and at least show sympathy with them and then we can continue.”
