The Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi has visited Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka amid controversy between the latter and the Obidients.

Obidents, a dubbed description for the supporters of Peter Obi, had dragged Playwright Soyinka over his comment condemning the Vice Presidential candidate of LP, Datti Baba-Ahmed.

However, Obi, through his Twitter handle on Sunday, lauded Soyinka over his achievement on the world stage and his struggle for a better Nigeria.
