Presidential candidate of Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi visited Timber market in Owerri, and it was a reverberating experience.
The highlight of the market storm in Imo state was when a supporter braved through the crowd with her child and handed the baby to Obi.
According to Peter Obi Media Arm (POMA), the woman wanted the LP presidential flagbearer to bless her only child.
Photos which have gone viral show Obi holding the baby while inside a car in the middle of a mamoth crowd. He smiled and lifted the child to look at the face.
POMA captioned; “A heartwarming moment when a woman brought her ONLY child to HE @PeterObi for blessings.
It was during PO’s roadshow at Timber Market, one of the three markets in Owerri he visited today.”
Meanwhile, Grand Patron of the All Progressives Congress (North-Central), Hajiya Mariam Salihu, has said the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is running for presidency to make Nigeria better.
She made the comment during an empowerment forum organised by a support group, National Agenda for Greater Asiwaju.
Salihu said the former governor of Lagos state does not want to be the president of Nigeria to enrich himself because is a selfless person who has empowered numerous people.
The APC chieftain also said that Nigeria under the administration of Tinubu will be peaceful.
She said; “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a strategist, he’s selfless. He’s in the presidency to reposition Nigeria as a better country for all and the future.
Nigeria will be peaceful under Asiwaju; he has the money, and influence. Hes not contesting the presidency for himself but for all.
“If you look at everybody around him, he did not only empower only those around him, his empowerment cut across the country. That is the kind of leader we want.
Asiwaju is somebody that is proactive, he is somebody that is selfless, he is somebody that is not after himself. If Asiwaju is someone who is after himself, I don’t think he would want to be the president of this country.”
