Mr. Peter Obi visiting Sheik Gumi was a very good move expected of any presidential candidate who genuinely believe he is for all Nigerians.
To be clear, I, Charles Ogbu will not be in the same room as Gumi but that is because I am Charles, a private citizen with the latitude to hold and demonstrate my personal prejudices and biases against anyone, group or region of the country.
If I want to run for any national office which will place me in charge of the destiny of everyone from every part of the country, it becomes untenable, morally criminal, even! for me to DEMONSTRATE any form of prejudice against any Nigerian or group from any region or religion in the country.
POLITICS/STATECRAFT IS DIFFERENT FROM ACTIVISM.
