Presidential candidate of The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) Peter Obi, on his 61st birthday.
Atiku took to his instagram, describing Peter Obi as his “good friend” and wished him more years in good health.
His post stated: “On behalf of my family, I wish my good friend, presidential candidate of the LP, and former Governor of Anambra State, H.E Peter Obi, a memorable 61st birthday celebration. I wish you many more years in good health and vitality.”
Peter and Obi have maintained a cordial relationship despite both contending for the 2023 presidential seat.
Peter had attended Atiku’s declaration for presidency a few months ago.
When Peter was asked in an interview how he has still managed to keep the relationship with Atiku despite being conteders, he replied, “This is a new politics. I play politics differently. For me, politics is not a war. It’s a relationship.
“Atiku is my leader, my boss, and a senior brother. If he invites me for anything, I will attend. Aspiring (for the presidency) does not say I should not keep my relationships very cordial.
“I’m aspiring. Remember, I always say it, Atiku is a unifier. He believes in Nigeria. He’s a good man. And anytime he invites me for anything, I will be there.” Former Governor of Anambra, Peter Obi said.
