Atiku Congratulates Peter Obi at 61

-Ikenna Okafor

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, congratulated Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, on his 61st birthday.

Atiku wrote on his Twitter page, “On behalf of my family, I wish my good friend, presidential candidate of the LP, and former Governor of Anambra State, @PeterObi, a memorable 61st birthday celebration. I wish you continued good health and vitality.”

Peter Obi served as Governor of Anambra State for two terms under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). He left the APGA for the PDP in 2014 and ran as Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election. They were defeated in the election by incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

For personal reasons, Peter Obi defected to the Labour Party near the end of May and won the party’s presidential primaries.

Peter Obi has always referred to Atiku Abubakar as his leader, friend, and unifier. As a result, there appears to be no bad blood between the two major candidates for the 2023 elections.
