The elderly man’s flight from Asaba to Abuja was canceled and rescheduled for later that evening. Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, was seen in the video arranging a private jet flight for him.
Despite the setback, Peter Obi acted without delay and quickly booked a private plane to take the elderly man.
While some social media users expressed surprise that Peter Obi could afford to reserve a private jet, others praised him for his kind deed.
He was still criticized by some, though, with some seeing only political motives in his actions.
