A Nigerian attorney, Kayode Ajulo has urged the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP) Peter Obi to reach out to critical stakeholders across the country, particularly in the northern part before election campaign sets in .
Ajulo who lamented the unseriousness of the former Governor of Anambra state towards the northern part, disclosed that some Northern governors are willing to support Obi, but observed that the LP candidate is not making efforts to involve the northern part in his presidential quest.
Ajulo made this known in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Friday, where he urged Peter Obi to take advantage of the time before real electioneering campaigns begin and reach out to the northern part of the country.
He further urged Mr Obi to move beyond southern Nigeria and reach out to the northern part, as “selling himself to the people of northern extraction may change the narrative.’
“I will still say Peter Obi is not ready to be president because he is not ready to cross River Niger and even River Owena,” Mr Ajulo said.
“I am aware of three governors from the North who have given indications to support him.”
Mr Ajulo called on the LP Presidential candidate to go beyond social media and embrace real term politics by reaching out to every nook and cranny of the country.
