Obasanjo’s Endorsement Of Obi Bad For Atiku – Keyamo

The spokesperson for the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo says the endorsement of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, by former president Olusegun Obasanjo is bad for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

Reacting to Obasanjo’s endorsement of Obi in a letter to Nigerians , Keyamo, in a tweet on Sunday, claimed that the endorsement had no effect on the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

According to him, the endorsement meant that Obasanjo didn’t see Atiku, who was the vice president in his administration, as deserving of the presidency.

Keyamo wrote, “Quite within OBJ’s right to endorse anyone, but bad for PDP in two ways: 1) Atiku’s former boss does not think he deserves to be President this time around. 2) The little support OBJ gave PDP in 2019 and they failed, he has taken that away to LP. No effect at all on @officialABAT.”

However, in response, Atiku’s Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, blasted Keyamo saying, “It’s within OBJ’s right to endorse anyone. But it’s within the rights of Nigerians to elect their President. Were you in Ghana on rehab like your friend to have forgotten that the Obj-Atiku admin produced the greatest economic boom in the history of Nigeria? Those are the considerations Nigerians will make.”

Obasanjo had, in his New Year letter to Nigerians, described Obi as having an edge in terms of character, antecedent, understanding, knowledge, discipline, and vitality over other candidates in the 2023 presidential election.
