Why I may support Peter Obi for 2027 Presidency -Atiku

Former Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democrat Party ( PDP) in the 2023 General election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has hinted at the possibility of working with Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate in the 2023 election, to defeat President Bola Tinubu and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come 2027.

During the week, the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 presidential election met with his Labour Party counterpart at his private residence in Abuja.

In an interview with the BBC Hausa, Atiku said the meeting was just the usual meeting between the opposition. He added that such meetings are healthy for the country’s democracy.

The former vice president said a merger between the PDP and the Labour Party is possible. His statement reads in part: “Yes, it’s very much possible. We can merge to achieve a common goal, and nothing can stop us if we so wish to achieve that.”

Atiku further dismissed the insinuation that the choice of a presidential candidate would frustrate the merger, adding that such an issue would not even arise, expressing optimism that the merger would come and stay.

He said: ” If the party decides that it’s the turn of the South-East and Peter Obi is chosen, I won’t hesitate to support him.” Recall that Peter Obi left the PDP before the 2023 presidential election and joined the Labour Party, where he became the party’s flagbearer. Obi and Atiku recorded significant scores in the outcome of the 2023 election.
