Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party has said that the Federal Government has not shown compassion for the plight of flood victims across Nigeria.
Speaking during a visit to Governor Samuel Ortom in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, Obi noted that leadership comes with compassion, listening and understanding.
“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.
“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.”
