Kaduna: Kaduna based fiery and controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Mohammed Gumi has stated that he would endorse and express total support for the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi if he can restructure Nigeria if elected president in 2023.
He made the assertion in Kaduna on Monday while receiving the former Anambra State governor who paid him a courtesy visit at his his Kaduna residence with his running mate, Senator Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed and other members of his campaign team including Dr Tanko Yunusa, Chief Spokesperson to the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council.
Obi and his running mate were in Kaduna to attend an interactive session for presidential candidates organised by a joint committee of Arewa groups in the build up to the 2023 general elections.
Gumi expressed his commendation to Obi for finding time to visit and brief him about his Presidential project.
According to Gumi: “As you come here (Kaduna) people will like to hear your views about restructuring Nigeria; Nigeria has been restructuring itself from independence to date. It was never static, but I want to know about views on restructuring so that I can write on my Facebook page `this is the presidential candidate who can do this for me; I will assure him of my vote’”.
Gumi also asked the LP presidential candidate how he intends to address the issues of agitations and poverty in the country.
“How are you going to deal with the issue of polarity and agitations across Nigeria? Every region is agitating because people are not happy, how are you going to make these people (agitators) happy under one table?
