Peter Obi, the presidential flagbearer of the Labour Party (LP) and his running mate, Datti Baba-Ahmed, paid a visit to the Sultan of Sokoto, Abubakar Sa’ad, on Wednesday.
The former governor shared pictures of the visit on his official Twitter page.
“Dr Datti Baba-Ahmed and I just arrived in Sokoto for today’s Presidential Rally. Thank you all for the warm welcome,” the former Anambra State governor said in a tweet.
He also thanked the monarch for his hospitality in another post.
“Courtesy call by Datti and I on His Eminence, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto at his Palace. We’re most grateful for his hospitality and usual warmth,” another tweet signed by Obi read.
The LP presidential candidate reminded the monarch that they have known each other for four decades.
“Your Eminence, if there is anyone that knows me the most in this room it is you. We have known each other for over 40 years,” Obi said.
