The co-convener of the BringBackOurGirls movement, Aisha Yesufu has commended the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi for meeting with the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike on Wednesday.
Recall that the former Governor of Anambra State had a closed-door meeting with Wike in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital yesterday.
Obi while stating the reason behind his visit to the Peoples Democratic Party governor in a post on his Twitter account said, he met with Wike about vital issues of national interest.
The presidential candidate sharing photos on his Twitter account wrote, ”Earlier today, I visited Port-Harcourt, to confer with H.E. @GovWike on vital issues of national interest.-PO”
Yesufu in her reaction noted that Obi’s meeting is more strategic than his trip to Egypt.
She wrote on her Twitter account, “This is more strategic than that Egypt trip!
Obi last week had visited Egypt as part of his detailed study of comparable countries to Nigeria.
While in the North-Eastern African country, Obi understudied the country’s power, education, planning and finance sectors.
Obi wrote, “I just departed for Egypt on a 3-day visit as part of my detailed study of comparable countries to Nigeria.
“In Egypt, I am expected to understudy, among others, the Egyptian Power Sector, Education, Planning and Finance Sectors.”
The presidential candidate received backlash for not travelling to Ekiti State to support the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
