Peter Obi Meets with Atiku, Saraki, and Lamido Amidst Concerns Over The State Of The Nation

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, held separate meetings with former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, and former Governor of Jigawa State Sule Lamido on Monday.
Atiku shared snapshots of his encounter with Obi on his X handle, expressing his honor and privilege in hosting the LP candidate.
“It was my honour and privilege to host @PeterObi today,” Atiku wrote.
In a subsequent statement, Tanko Yunusa, the LP presidential campaign spokesman, revealed that Obi initiated the visits to deliberate on the “state of the nation.”
“Worried about the state of the nation and the increasing uncertainty in the living conditions of the poor and underprivileged, Obi in Abuja on Monday visited some top Nigerians, among whom are former vice president, and PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Atiku Abubakar, the former Senate President Senator Bukola Saraki and the former Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido,” the statement read.
“At the centre of discussion during each of these visits was the state of the nation and how to reduce the suffering of all Nigerians irrespective of class and location. In particular, the desperate condition of the downtrodden in our midst was highlighted.
“Of particular interest and emphasis in these discussions was the worrisome situation in the northern parts of the country.”
It’s noteworthy that Obi served as Atiku’s running mate in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2019 presidential election.
However, ahead of the 2023 polls, Obi transitioned to the Labour Party (LP), diverging from the PDP.
Meanwhile, Atiku contested under the PDP banner in the same election, ultimately conceding victory to President Bola Tinubu.
