2023 presidency: Why I attended Atiku’s declaration – Peter Obi
Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State, has stated why he attended the occasion where former Vice President Atiku Abubakar publicly announced his desire to run for President of Nigeria in 2023.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that Atiku, the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 presidential election, was formally declared in Abuja on Wednesday to run for the office of the Nigerian president.
Peter Obi, who is also a presidential candidate for 2023, claimed he attended the event since he was invited while fielding questions from journalists shortly after the event.
He claims to have a cordial relationship with the former Vice President, stating that despite his own political ambitions, he will continue to attend Atiku’s events if invited.
He said, “The reason why I am here is that this is new politics. As you know, I play politics differently, as for me, politics is not a war.
“Atiku is my boss, my leader and an elder brother. If he invites me for anything, I will attend. Aspiring does not mean I should not keep my relationship that is cordial.
“Atiku is a unifier and anytime he invites me for anything, I will be there”.
