Atiku Hosts Peter Obi, Putting 2023 Elections Behind


Former Running Mates Reunite: Atiku Abubakar Hosts Peter Obi in Abuja

In a heartwarming display of camaraderie, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar welcomed his former running mate, Peter Obi, to his Abuja residence on Monday. The reunion marked a significant moment for the two political leaders who shared a ticket in the 2019 general election.

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2023 general election, took to social media to express his delight at hosting Obi. “It was my honour and privilege to host @PeterObi today,” he wrote on his X handle.


The meeting held special significance, given the pair’s shared history. Peter Obi, who contested the 2023 presidential election on the Labour Party ticket, had previously paired with Atiku Abubakar as vice presidential candidate in the 2019 election. Obi’s departure from the PDP in May 2022 marked a significant turning point in his political journey.

Despite their differing political paths, the reunion demonstrated that the bond between Atiku and Obi remains strong. The meeting has sparked hopes of a renewed alliance between the two leaders, potentially paving the way for future collaborations.

As the 2023 elections recede into memory, this reunion serves as a poignant reminder of the power of political camaraderie and the enduring bonds forged in the pursuit of public service.
