Presidential candidate of Labour Party Peter Obi and his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed on Monday visited popular Islamic cleric Ahmad Gumi at his residence in Kaduna State.

Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, was in Kaduna for the Arewa Joint Committee.

“Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed and I stopped by for a courtesy call on Sheikh Gumi at his official residence in Kaduna,” the 61-year-old tweeted.

Obi, in recent times, has visited northern powerbrokers and thought leaders including the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero; and the Chairman of Northern Elders Forum, Ango Abdullahi. He also visited former Heads of State, Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalami Abubakar.

In a Channels Television‘s interview, Baba-Ahmed said those who think Obi and himself are not received in Northern Nigeria don’t know what they are saying.

“Whoever thinks that Labour Party or Obi-dient movement or Peter Obi as an individual is not being welcomed in the north, they are making a huge mistake.

“Awareness has been very high in the north. What happens is that northerners listen more to the politicians and the politicians seem to have more impact on the populace in the north and awareness is pretty high,” he said.
