Gershon Ogbuluijah, a supporter of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi, has climbed the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to place the Labour Party’s flag.
Mr Ogbuluijah announced his arrival on the Uhuru peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania on October 20.
He wrote on Twitter, “On Fri, 20/10/2022 after 10½ hrs of climbing, hiking and trekking, I made it to the Uhuru Peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, 5,895m above sea level. There is no better place to announce the coming of a New Nigeria than the Rooftop of Africa.”
Ogbuluijah, who is also an author, added that in planning the climb, he chose to commence on October 15 so that he would arrive at the summit on October 20 which was his wife Tina’s birthday.
Reacting to this on Thursday, Mr Obi tweeted, “I am always overwhelmed by the show of love and support from the OBIdients in Nigeria and Diaspora. Your many acts of sacrifices reassure me of your patriotism and flaming desire to take back your country for good.
“Thank you @OGersh for taking our OBIdient message to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. It must have been a tough journey going up there for a noble sacrifice. I assure you and every Nigerian that under my watch, Nigeria will regain its position as the pride of Africa.
“It may be a tough journey, but we are not stopping, till we get to the top.”
