The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has advised Nigerians to show love to all, including the physically challenged at all times.
Obi made the appeal during the solemnization of marriage between two physically challenged girls and their spouses - Gloria Ofodille/ Samson Fidelis and Judith Nwokeji/Ikenna Ibeadua at St. Aloysius Church of Divine Mercy, Recdot Centre, Ozubulu.

Obi, who was the Father of the Day at the event thanked the proprietor of the centre, Mrs. Rosemary Odunukwe, for being faithful to the service of God.
Obi called on Nigerians to imitate Odunukwe by contributing to the welfare of the physically challenged.
He advised the government at all levels to show more concern to their plight and to assist the likes of Mrs Odunukwe for doing what should essentially be the task of the government.
In her own remarks, Mrs. Odunukwe thanked Bishop Hilary Okeke for showing love to the centre.
Besides,she praised Obi, who, according to her, has always identified with the centre.

Her words: “When I first called his Media Adviser, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, on the possibility of Obi attending the wedding as the father of the day, he replied that he will come and that such events - bringing happiness to the challenged - is part of what gives him joy.”
