Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has stated what would make him vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, in 2023.
Gumi assured Obi of his vote if he can restructure Nigeria if elected President in next year’s polls.
He spoke in Kaduna State yesterday while playing host to the erstwhile Governor of Anambra State and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed.
It was gathered that Obi and his running mate were in Kaduna State to attend an interactive session for presidential candidates organised by a joint committee of Arewa groups in the build up to the 2023 general elections.
However, Gumi commended Obi for visiting and briefing him about his plan for Nigeria.
According to Gumi: “As you come here (Kaduna) people will like to hear your views about restructuring Nigeria; Nigeria has been restructuring itself from independence to date. It was never static, but I want to know about views on restructuring so that I can write on my Facebook page ‘this is the presidential candidate who can do this for me; I will assure him of my vote.’”
Gumi also asked the LP presidential candidate how he intends to address the issues of agitations and poverty across the country.
“How are you going to deal with the issue of polarity and agitations across Nigeria? Every region is agitating because people are not happy. How are you going to make these people (agitators) happy under one table?
