Peter Obi Blast FG, Says Compassion To Flood Victims Not Enough

Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi said the Federal Government has not shown compassion to the plight of flood victims across Nigeria.

“We want a Nigeria that we will show patriotism by caring for the people on everything. Look at the flooding that has happened all over Nigeria. As far as I am concerned, the Government of Nigeria has not responded adequately, they’ve not shown compassion,” the former Anambra State governor said on Tuesday during a visit to Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

“Leadership comes with compassion, it comes with listening, it comes with understanding. Even those people in (Internally Displaced Persons) IDP (camps) how many people has the Federal Government come to visit. That is what you do, that is what shows you are committed.”

Obi has emphasized on the  ‘deal’ he has with some aggrieved governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) including Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue is nothing more than to achieve a better Nigeria.

He said, “The only deal I have with them is that they are passionate about Nigeria,” Obi said.

 Obi has been on tour for the past one month around the flood-ravaged communities in Benue, Bayelsa and a few others to encourage and share in the pains of the victims.
