How Peter Obi lobbied me to become Atiku Abubakar’s running mate in 2019
Reno Omokri, a politician and sociopolitical analyst from Nigeria, has described how Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, allegedly persuaded him to join Atiku Abubakar’s ticket for the 2019 elections.
Reno revealed this information on his verified Instagram account and stated that the taunts he has been experiencing from Ob’s supporters recently is what prompted him to do so.
The socio-political commentator described his meeting with Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar in Dubai regarding the 2019 general elections. He expressed disappointment in Obi, claiming that he remains silent while his supporters insult him.
Reno complained on the site, writing: “I have never in my life been abused the way Peter Obi supporters disrespect me. However, I was approached by the same Peter when he wanted to be Atiku’s running mate in 2019. I backed him.
He yet observes as his followers defame Atiku and I. Tomorrow is unknown. I’m not even disgusted by Peter Obi fans’ actions. I’m disappointed in Peter personally. Even the fans of Tinubu do not disparage Atiku in the same way.
The same Atiku who supported him despite the fact that even his own governor vowed never to do so? when the Southeast Governors adamantly stated they did not want him.
“This picture was taken in Dubai in 2018 when Senator Ben Murray-Bruce and I were guests of HE Atiku. We each wore Peter Obi’s issue on our heads. We did not get one dime from him. He’s still here. Query him. We merely thought he was the most qualified person to be listed on the ticket. Nobody knows tomorrow, as I said.
