Tinubu’s Re-Election Will Be Easy Once Atiku Steps Down For Obi — Lauretta Onochie


Lauretta Onochie, former chairperson of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), says the stepping down of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for former Anambra Governor, Peter Obi would make President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s 2027 re-election easier.

Recall that Atiku, 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he would happily back a presidential candidate of south east extraction if the PDP zone its presidential ticket to the region.

“You know I never ask you for anything because you are a responsible father who provides for me, always. Thank you for answered prayer.”
