Mr Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), in the 2023 general election, has decried the depilated state of Nigeria’s national assets especially the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Obi noted that he was heartbroken when he visited the Abuja airport, on Wednesday, because of the poor state of facilities which serves as one of the gateways into the nation’s capital.

The former Presidential candidate of LP said he watched in horror as a disabled was being carried along with his wheelchair through the staircase as the elevator and escalator at the Airport have been down for three months now.

Obi, who wrote on his X-handle, wondered why public assets are overlooked by those in leadership positions.

He also frowned at the Presidency’s claim that the President is embarking on a private trip saying that there is nothing private for a sitting President.

Obi adde, “Just yesterday, I saw a heart-wrenching sight of a physically challenged traveler in a wheelchair being carried up the stairs by four men, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe airport, Abuja because neither the elevator nor the escalator had been functional, for the past 3 months.

“The situation becomes more disturbing when you imagine that such is happening in our nation’s capital, where our dignitaries and foreign investors travel through constantly. This was the same Airport and the same day that our dear President flew out on a private visit

“I have been wondering what is private for a sitting President who is not on vacation to embark on a publicly funded ‘private’ visit.
May I humbly remind the President that he is now a public national asset.
