The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the just concluded 2023 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi, will be in Abia State on Tuesday.
Obi will be in Abia state to solicit support for the governorship candidate of the party in the State, Alex Otti.
He is expected to go to Aba and Umuahia, the state capital, to thank his supporters for voting for him during the election.
A statement signed by Mr Ferdinand Ekeoma, the special adviser to Otti, on media and Publicity confirmed Obi’s visit to The PUNCH.
Ekeoma pointed out that Obi had, while speaking during his last visit to the state, emphatically said he would be in Abia again to campaign for Otti because both Otti and Abians are dear to him and thus deserve the best of support from him and his supporters.
