Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra and presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has flown out of Nigeria to “understudy Egypt’s education sector”.
Obi announced the trip through his official Twitter handle on Tuesday.
He said the three-day visit to the north-eastern African country is to understudy its power, education, planning and finance sectors.
“I just departed for Egypt on a 3-day visit as part of my detailed study of comparable countries to Nigeria,” he wrote.
“In Egypt, I am expected to understudy, among others, the Egyptian Power Sector, Education, Planning and Finance Sectors.”
The development comes amid the campaign for the February 2023 presidential elections.
Obi, who was elected as the flagbearer of the Labour Party in May, has consistently said his focus will be on moving Nigeria from “consumption to production”.
Meanwhile, varied reactions have trailed Obi’s decision to visit Egypt.
