Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri says the decision of former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s decision to endorse Peter Obi is not unconnected to the Nigerian civil war.

Obasanjo on New Year’s Day publicly declared support for Peter Obi of the Labour Party to win the 2023 presidential election.

Obasanjo made the declaration in an open letter to youths in Nigeria eight weeks before the general polls.

He said though other candidates have the capacity to rule, Peter Obi is the type of character the country needs.

Obasanjo urged young Nigerians to exercise their right, take active part in the 2023 elections and defend their votes.

But Reno Omokri, a staunch supporter of former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said Obasanjo’s support for Obi is to heal the wound of the 1966 civil war.

The Nigerian civil war was a three year long fratricide between 1967 and 1970 during which over three million Nigerians mostly of Igbo extraction were killed when the Eastern region of yore decided to secede from Nigeria.

According to him, the former President also wanted former Rivers State Governor, Peter Odili to become Vice President in 2007 but the late Yar’Adua insisted on Goodluck Jonathan

President Obasanjo is a good-hearted man. He has always wanted a President from the SE[South East] or close to the SE[South East]as a way to heal the Civil War wounds.

“In 2007, he wanted Peter Odili, but Yar’adua insisted on Governor Jonathan as VP. What Obj [Obasanjo]did won’t affect the election!”
