Peter Obi is straightforward, he doesn’t lie but I’ll still prefer Atiku” – Reno Omokri
Reno Omokri, a popular political commentator, has stated that while he likes and supports presidential candidate Peter Obi, he still favours Atiku Abubakar.
When a follower inquired if he agreed that Peter Obi is a bigot, the activist denied it, claiming that the Peter Obi he knows is honest and does not lie.
The former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan said that he has known the politician for a long time and feels he would make a good president, but that Atiku remains his preferred candidate.
He expressed himself as follows:
“Who informed you I’m not a supporter of Peter Obi?” Please inquire as to how he came to be HE Atiku’s vice president in 2019. He is uncomplicated. He will not deceive you. Peter has my support. He will make a terrific President, in my opinion. That has always been my position and has never changed. I, on the other hand, prefer Atiku over him. I wish he had remained in our group. He would have been the vice presidential candidate.
That Peter is a bigot is completely incorrect. In 2019, he was the target of APC propaganda. Peter’s wife isn’t even of Igbo descent. He married her at a time when an Igbo guy marrying outside his ethnic group was nearly unthinkable. That alone disproves his ethnic bigotry. Because he is not a racist, he even appeals to some Northern Muslims.
Peter’s sole flaw is that I prefer Atiku over him. If this election were a JAMB form, where you select your first, second, and third choices, the outcome would be different. My first and second selections would be Atiku. My third choice would be Peter!”
