Peter Obi Attends Atiku’s Presidential Declaration

KanyiDaily had reported that Atiku officially declared his intention to contest in the 2023 presidential election at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja on Wednesday.

Obi, who is also a 2023 presidential aspirant, made a surprise appearance declaration at the ceremony of what many perceive as his political rival for the top job of the nation.

While fielding questions from journalists shortly after the event, the ex-governor said he attended the event because he was invited by Atiku who he described as leader, boss, and senior brother.

Peter Obi stated that he sees politics as a relationship rather than war, noting that there was no form of animosity between himself and Atiku but rather a support for a leader who he admires.

He said, “The reason why I am here is that this is new, as you know I play politics differently and to me, politics is not a war, it is a relationship and Atiku is my leader, he is my boss, he is a senior brother.

“If he invites me for anything I will attend, aspiring for anything does not say I should not keep my relationship that is very cordial and everything.”

He, however, reiterated that despite his political ambition to become president of Nigeria in 2023, he sees the former vice president as just and one who has the nation at heart.

“I am aspiring but remember I always say it Atiku Is a unifier, he believes in Nigeria, he is a good man and every time he invites me for anything I will be there; that notwithstanding I am aspiring I want to serve Nigeria,” Obi said.

Despite growing speculations of the 60-year-old making a formal declaration, he has yet to make his intentions public and when asked when this could happen, “you will see very soon” was his reply.

When asked the kind of leader Nigeria needs, Obi asserted that the nation’s fate rested in the hands of one who had the capacity to handle the economic situations plaguing it.

He said, “We need someone with capacity, competency and someone who can bring Nigeria together and someone that will tackle the economy.”
