Gov Sule to Peter Obi: ‘Support Tinubu with your experience, competence, capacity’

You’re free to leave Labour Party — NLC tells Peter Obi

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has called on Mr Peter Obi to support President Bola Tinubu with his experience, competence, and capacity for the good of the country.

Sule said this when Obi visited him on Monday in Lafia, the state capital.

Obi was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 general elections.

The governor, who said that elections were over, maintained that the president needs the support of all Nigerians to move the nation forward.

Governor Sule told Obi: “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. As such you need to contribute your quota to the development of the country.

“You can contribute your quota quietly, because the President needs all the necessary support to bring the country back on track,” Sule said.

He said that the President alone cannot address the current challenges confronting the nation. Well-meaning citizens like Obi should support him, Sule added.

He noted that President Tinubu meant well for the country and called on Nigerians to support him in addressing insecurity, economic hardship, and other challenges confronting the country.

Borehole projects

However, Sule lauded Obi for drilling boreholes in some communities in the state. He added that the gesture had complemented government’s efforts toward alleviating the sufferings of the people.

Earlier, Peter Obi said that the visit was part of his nationwide tour to offer support to Nigerians during Ramadan.

He lauded Sule for constructing new roads in the state, adding that the move had given the state a new look.

He said: “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.

”So, I commend you for the road networks in the state,” he added. (NAN)
