Abdullahi Sule, governor of Nasarawa, has appealed to Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, to support President Bola Tinubu in succeeding.

Sule spoke on Monday when Obi visited him in Lafia, the state capital.

The governor maintained that the elections were over, adding that the president alone cannot address the challenges confronting the nation.

He said Tinubu needed all the necessary support, adding that well-meaning citizens like Obi can contribute to bringing the country back on track.

“I know you have the experience, competence, and capacity to support the president in the overall interest of the country,” Sule said.

“The president is your friend and colleague, we were all in Lagos at some point, and as such, you need to contribute your quota to the development of the country.”

The governor praised Obi for drilling boreholes in some communities in the state, noting that the gesture complemented the government’s efforts to alleviate people’s suffering.

Speaking earlier, Obi said the visit was part of his nationwide tour to provide support to Nigerians during Ramadan.

“I am not desperate to be president of this country, but I am desperate to see Nigeria work for the good of all,” he said.

“I always commend people when they do well because politics to me is not about being negative every time.”

Obi commended Sule for constructing new roads in the state, which he said gave it a new appearance.
