I recommended Peter Obi to Atiku, can’t support Tinubu in 2027 – Reno Omokri

A former media aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has disclosed that he recommended Peter Obi to former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar in 2019 as a running mate.

Omokri said he recommended Obi’s name as running mate following a request from Atiku.

The former presidential aide spoke during an interview with Seun Okinbaloye via his podcast, Mic On.

He vowed never to leave Atiku to support President Bola Tinubu in 2027 presidential election.

Omokri has been in support of some Tinubu’s economic recovery policies.

However, he said: “Peter Obi can’t deny that I was the one who recommended him to Waziri Atiku Abubakar when he asked me to help choose a running mate in 2019.

“I called former President Jonathan and he told me it’s Peter Obi, but I told him I just can’t submit one name. We padded the list with others while making Obi’s name look very rosy.

“Atiku chose Obi so after a man had done me just great honour, I will now turn around and be supporting his opponent in the next election?

“I can’t do that, if Atiku decide to contest in 2027 and get the PDP’s presidential candidate, I’m duty bound to support him.”
