The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has revealed plans to include Peter Obi in his administration if he wins the 2023 presidential election.
Atiku who stated that he plans to run an inclusive government if elected in 2023 added that members of the opposition would also be considered for appointments by his government.
He described himself as a unifier and promised to work with all relevant stakeholders if elected.
We reported that the PDP candidate made this known in an interview published by Financial Times on Monday, December 19.
Asked specifically what Obi’s role will be in his government, Atiku however said that can wait until the elections are won first.
On if he would give an appointment to Obi, Atiku replied, “Why not?”
However, in response to a further question on what Obi’s role will be in his government, Atiku declined to give a response, stating that winning the election is the focus and then what people can do will follow later.
“Let’s win the elections before thinking of roles people can play.”
We reported Peter Obi is the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) and one of the leading candidates heading into the February presidential elections.
He was the running mate to Atiku in 2019 who was also the PDP candidate at that time.
