Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi visited the emirate of Biu, the southern part of Borno state, on Thursday as part of his campaign to become Nigeria’s next president.

Peter Obi is the first Nigerian presidential candidate to visit the emirate.

There was great jubilation and disbelief from South Borno natives from Chibok, Gwoza, Hawul, Askira Uba and the nine local government areas, who said they never imagined that a popular presidential candidate would think of and even visit them. .

Obi visited the emirate in the company of his running mate Datti Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, Labor Party Chairman Julius Abure, gubernatorial candidate Captain Ibrahim Mshelia, the coordinator of the event, who is the deputy national campaign manager of the party, Isaac Balami and other campaign stalwarts.

He vowed to ease the suffering and wipe away the tears of South Borno workers caused by Boko Haram.

“I am one of you and I am sorry for your plight. I know that you are all workers and you want to return to your farms. I give you my word that this issue of insecurity will be a thing of the past in my administration and I will make sure that my government gives you the best of life.

”Thank you for everything you have done for the country and I will never forget you. A new Nigeria is possible,” Obi said.
