The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have commenced subtly luring of former President Olusegun Obasanjo to support the PDP presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar.

Accordingly, a Spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation, Charles Aniagwu, in a media interaction on Wednesday in Asaba, Delta State, made an insinuation that former President Obasanjo would support Atiku in the 2023 presidential election.

Aniagwu, the Commissioner for Information in Delta State, made the conjecture that former President Obasanjo would have seen the competence of Atiku during the period the PDP candidate worked with Obasanjo as vice president for eight years, claiming that Atiku helped Obasanjo to reposition Nigeria’s economy.

The commissioner noted that they may have some differences with regards to politics, Obasanjo still supported Atiku in the 2019 presidential election.

Aniagwu had stated: “I will like to refer to 2019, former President Obasanjo supported Atiku in that election. Atiku was more or less Obasanjo’s candidate, so, if he supported him that much, I don’t think anything has changed between 2019 and now.

“Again, former President Obasanjo, is a man we have enormous respect for.

“I am confident that the same God that led him to support Atiku in 2019 is still alive and will lead him to know that Atiku has what it takes to rescue our country from where we are at the moment.

“We believe that Obasanjo is a man who meant well for our country, he has demonstrated this in so many ways. He saw the ability of Atiku in 1999, and he chose him against all odds to become his running mate.

“So, we are quite optimistic that former President Obasanjo, will in the interest of our country and in line with his patriotic ideals support Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2023 general election.”

He expressed optimism that in spite of the many challenges facing the country Atiku would “walk the talk.”
