Mr Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide to Goodluck Jonathan, has said he personally recommended Peter Obi as running mate to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential election.

He disclosed this during an interview on a podcast programme, Mic On.

Omokri said he recommended Obi’s name as running mate following a request from the former Vice President.

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

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.”
