“Atiku Stepping Down For Peter Obi Will Ease Tinubu’s Reelection Bid,” – Lauretta Onochie



Atiku Obi Onochie

Lauretta Onochie, who served as media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed her hope that Atiku Abubakar, the former presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), would withdraw from the 2027 presidential race in favor of Peter Obi, the Labour Party candidate.

On Saturday, Onochie suggested that if Atiku were to step aside for Obi, it would facilitate an easier path to reelection for President Bola Tinubu.

Posting on X, Onochie wrote: “Our Father and our God. Yes, it’s me, your son. I pray that Atiku steps down for Obi, so that 2027 would be an easy job for APC re-election

“You know I never ask you for anything because you are a responsible father who provides for me, always. Thank you for answered prayer.”

Atiku recently said he would not hesitate to support Obi in the next election if the party picks the former Anambra governor.

Recall that Obi and Atiku recently met behind closed doors, sparking speculations about a merger of some opposition political parties ahead of the 2027 general elections.

Confirming the move by opposition parties to align in a bid to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2027 election, Atiku said, “We can merge to achieve a common goal. So, it’s possible and nothing can stop it if we so wish to achieve that.”

Atiku said if the new “party decides that it’s the turn of the South-East and Peter Obi is chosen, I won’t hesitate to support him”.

“I have said repeatedly and I even said it before the 2023 general elections that if PDP decides to zone the presidential ticket to the South or South-East specifically, I won’t contest it.”
