Obi Apologises For Not Visiting Ill Rivers LP Guber Candidate

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has apologised to the party’s governorship flag-bearer in Rivers State, Mrs Beatrice Itubo, for not meeting with her, during his recent visit to the state.

Explaining the reasons why he failed to meet with the governorship candidate, Obi cited inadvertent oversight and a lack of information on the state of the candidate’s health status.

Recall that Obi was invited by the State’s Governor, Nyesom Wike, to inaugurate the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port-Harcourt, the State capital.

In a series of tweets on his verified handle, Obi said, “My sincere apologies to Mrs Beatrice Itubo, the Labour Party candidate in Rivers State for an inadvertent oversight.

“When I visited Port Harcourt a few days back, I was not informed or aware of her sickness.

“On arrival in Port Harcourt, I was welcomed by the Labour Party Presidential State Coordinator in Rivers State and other Party stakeholders.

“We had a useful meeting and I explained to them the purpose of my visit, which was to respectfully honour an invitation by the Rivers State Government and that I will return for our party’s rally and other LP engagements soon.

“No one mentioned that our candidate was sick, otherwise I would have visited her before or after the event. I had committed to passing through the campaign office no matter how late and I did at about 6.30 pm.
