Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) has described Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimna as a good man.

The former Anambra State governor made the statement when he met the governor at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport while visiting Imo on his campaign tour.

This is contained in a statement signed by the governor’s chief press secretary, Oguwike Nwachuku, on Tuesday.

Mr Obi, who arrived at the airport before Mr Uzodimma, said he waited for the latter upon hearing that he was already airborne as a sign of respect for the Imo governor.

“Your Excellency, I had to stay back to greet you because I learnt you were already on the way coming. You are a good man, and I owe you that honour to wait to greet you. I really appreciate it,” said Mr Obi.

Mr Uzodimma thanked the former Anambra governor for the compliments and wished him well.

Uzodimma who is a key member of the APC's campaign said that all political parties interested in campaigning at any government-owned facility in Owerri were welcomed as approval for such would not be withheld from them.

He further directed relevant approving authorities in the state to grant the request of any of the political parties to use any facility of their choice for their campaign rally.

The Labour Party happened to be the first.
