Peter Obi arrives in Lagos after hugely successful US tour


Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi returned to Lagos on Monday morning on a Virgin Atlantic flight from London.

Obi boarded the flight at Heathrow Airport in London and was seen chatting and taking pictures with many passengers on the flight.

Obi was besieged by stationary passengers after spotting him.

One of his last functions in the United States was held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Midtown hotel in New York for a conference on the theme: “Afro-economics and public policy: a conversation with Governor Peter Obi” .

The engagement funded in part by the Africa Business Club and the Columbia University Black Law Students Association followed other well-attended events in the United States.

The Hilton Grand Ballroom is a facility that can accommodate 3,000 people. For a city with nearly 700 hotels before COVID, Hilton considers the property the largest ballroom in town. At the height of the event, it was about two-thirds full.
