Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate, sent birthday greetings to Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s nominee for president, who celebrates his 61st birthday on Tuesday.
Through his official Twitter account, the former vice president wished the former governor of Anambra State “more years in good health and energy” and characterized Obi as a close friend.
He wrote, “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. -AA”
Peter Obi was Atiku’s presidential running mate under the PDP during the 2019 presidential election, which they lost to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress.
Obi was a presidential aspirant of the PDP until in May when he announced his defection to the Labour Party and subsequently won the party’s presidential ticket.
