2023: Peter Obi Is Atiku’s Creation — Melaye

The spokesperson of the Atiku presidential campaign organisation, Dino Melaye has described the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi as the creation of the former Vice President.

According to Melaye, nobody knew the former governor of Anambra State before the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, chose him as his running mate in 2019.

Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the PDP.

He further stated that Atiku discovered Obi, adding that Obi should never outshine his master.

Melaye, however, described Obi as a fantastic Nigerian but claimed that the presidency in the country is not the same thing as the director general of the National Bureau of Statistics.

The former lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district in an interview with Tribune said, “I want to even announce that Peter Obi is a creation of Atiku. Nobody knew Peter Obi at the national level before he was announced as the running mate of Atiku Abubakar against all odds in 2019 because Atiku is a talent hunter.

“So, Atiku discovered Peter Obi, and law 5 of the 48 laws of power says ‘never outshine your master’. That is the reason why any day Peter sees Atiku, he must pay his maximum respect. There is seniority even in the beer parlour. A man taking beer and a man taking champagne, are not on the same level.

“I will not say more than that about Peter Obi and Atiku. Peter Obi is a fantastic Nigerian but the presidency of this country is not the same thing as the director general of the National Bureau of Statistics. They are two different things.”
