The presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has asked his counterparts in other parties to suspend their campaigns and join him to help victims of floods across states of the federation.
Obi made the call on Wednesday while addressing journalists after his visit to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State at his Abuja private residence where he had gone to discuss modalities on his planned visit to flood sites in Benue and other states.
Obi said he expected other presidential candidates to show concerns to the plight of victims of flooding, considering how millions were spent on nomination forms alone.
The former Anambra governors reacted to the allegations by Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State that he detained him in Anambra while he served as governor, pointing out that he had no such powers.
According to Obi, he too was confined to his local government during the said election.
He urged El-Rufai to put the incident behind himself.
