Peter Obi Discloses Why He Attended Atiku’s Presidential Declaration
Peter Obi, the Peoples Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, has disclosed why he attended the occasion where Atiku Abubakar launched his presidential aspiration.
Recall that the former Vice President announced his candidacy for the country’s top political post on Wednesday.
Obi, who plans to run for president in 2023, said he only attended the dinner because he was invited.
After the ceremony, the former Anambra State Governor told reporters that he and Atiku had a good connection.
Despite his political aspirations, Obi says he would continue to attend Atiku’s event if he is invited.
He said, “The reason why I am here is that this is new politics. As you know, I play politics differently, 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”.
