Why I visited Atiku, Saraki, Lamido in Abuja

He said the closed-door meeting with Atiku and other PDP bigwigs was to discuss the state of the nation and how to reduce the suffering of Nigerians.

The spokesman of Peter Obi’s Presidential Campaign Organisation, Yunusa Tanko, made this known in a statement shared via his X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @YunusaTanko on Monday, May 13.

The statement was titled, State of the Nation and Plight of the Poor: Obi visits ATIKU, Saraki, and Lamido in Abuja.

Tanko added that Obi was driven to meet with Atuku and others due to the increasing uncertainty in the living conditions of the poor and underprivileged

“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.”
