Activist lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has reacted to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of ex vice president, Atiku Abubakar, for the 2019 presidency.
Atiku is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Falana, however, said he hoped God will forgive Obasanjo for making a u-turn
after his declaration that he won’t support the Wazirin Adamawa.
“Former President Obasanjo has a constitutional right to support any
presidential candidate of his choice”, Nation quoted him as saying.
“It is however hoped that God will forgive him for supporting
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar”, he said.
Meanwhile, Abubakar, has selected ex Governor of Anambra State,
Peter Obi as his running mate.
Director General of the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign Organisation,
Otunba Gbenga Daniel in a statement on Friday, said Obi’s choice was largely
influenced by his youthfulness, vast knowledge of global and local economics,
as well as being a financial expert.
“This ticket will be able to steer our nation back on the path of progress,
economic prosperity and unity,” he had said.
