The statement was titled, State of the Nation and Plight of the Poor: Obi visits ATIKU, Saraki, and Lamido in Abuja.

Tanko added that Obi was driven to meet with Atuku and others due to the increasing uncertainty in the living conditions of the poor and underprivileged

“At the centre of discussion during each of these visits was the state of the nation and how to reduce the suffering of all Nigerians irrespective of class and location. In particular, the desperate condition of the downtrodden in our midst was highlighted.
