The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the just-concluded 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, has paid a visit to Mrs Jennifer Efidi in Lagos.
Efidi was harassed and stabbed in the face by unknown persons in Surulere where she was to cast her vote for the Labour Party.
After treatment, she boldly came back to the polling unit to cast her vote for Obi and her bravery generated lots of positive reactions globally.
The LP president in a tweet on Monday, March 6, 2023, described Efidi as an icon of Nigeria’s democracy.
Obi tweeted: “Today, I visited Mrs Jennifer Efidi. She was attacked on 25th February in an attempt to stop her from voting, but she stood her ground. Jennifer is one of the great icons of Nigeria’s democracy.
“She is my point of contact with every Nigerian who suffered a similar fate in their bid to exercise their voting rights and contribute to a new Nigeria. Like many Nigerians, I acknowledge her bravery and resoluteness.
“Jennifer is a true manifestation of Profiles in Courage for a new Nigeria,”
