‘I wish my good friend a memorable birthday’ — Atiku hails Peter Obi at 61

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has congratulated Peter Obi on his 61st birthday.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Atiku wished Obi, who is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), a memorable birthday.

“On behalf of my family, I wish my good friend, presidential candidate of the LP, and former Governor of Anambra State, @PeterObi, a memorable 61st birthday celebration. I wish you many more years in good health and vitality,” Atiku tweeted

Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election.

Obi left the PDP in May, a few weeks before the party’s presidential primary.

The former governor of Anambra joined the LP and was elected to the party’s ticket.

The two remain friendly despite belonging to opposing political parties.

Obi congratulated Atiku on winning the PDP nomination, referring to him as his “leader and loving elder brother.”
