Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, would unite Nigeria, according to Nanzing Bako, the Coordinator of Obi/Datti Campaign Organisation in Plateau State.
Bako also dismissed the perception that Obi is an ethnic bigot.
He said, “Peter Obi is a true Nigerian in his outlook, thinking and character, and this simply means he is not an ethnic bigot.
“There is no one that will unite Nigerians at this critical moment of our nationhood than Obi, and this because he has the qualities of a good leader.
“His antecedents as governor of Anambra State have shown the kind of leader he is and what he has to offer Nigerians.”
Bako said that those calling Obi a bigot are doing so to tarnish the ex-governor’s person and candidacy.
He added Obi’s massive support from youths, women, and the various professional groups, shows his capacity to deliver on good governance. Obi, Bako averred would help Nigeria out of its challenges.
“And this is why we are calling on Nigerians to support the Labour Party by voting Obi and other candidates in the forthcoming general elections.
“Our party remains the only alternative solution that will salvage this country from its current predicaments,” he said.
