The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, Peter Obi has celebrated his 62nd birthday by visiting the biggest IDP camp in Plateau State.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle on Wednesday, the former Governor of Anambra State said that he commiserated with Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau over the widespread killings in the state. He added that he also went to schools, hospitals, and care homes across the state to mark his 62nd birthday.
Sharing photos from his visit, Obi wrote: “In line with my earlier humble request for friends and well-wishers to spread the love today by visiting hospitals, schools, and care homes to mark my 62nd birthday, I visited Plateau State to commiserate with the Governor and the people over the recent widespread unfortunate killings in the State, which are unacceptable.
“I visited Mangu Local Govt. Area, where over 300 people, including women and children, have been killed. I commiserated and condoled with them over the several attacks on them and the killings of their loved ones.
“I was at Bungha Pilot School in Mangu, which is the biggest IDP Camp in the State, occupied by about 60 communities. I made token support of N5 million with some bags of rice and also reassured them of our love and care. I equally explained to them that we are all in this together and that as long as we have some Nigerians living in IDP Camps, every Nigerian is living in IDP Camp.
“I appreciated the Governor of Plateau State, HE Barr @CalebMutfwang, for his warm reception and kind comments. I thanked him, especially for the great efforts he has made so far concerning the killings and terror attacks in the State, and for ensuring that the IDPs are well cared for.
“I commiserated with him over the killings in the State and encouraged him to continue to deliver good governance to the people. I also thanked the traditional ruler Mishkaham Mwaghavul, HRH John Putmang Hirse, for the hospitality, and assured the Mangu people that in the New Nigeria, their security and that of every Nigerian will be prioritized.”
