Nothing anybody can say about Peter Obi that will shake most people. If you say he beat your family members with bulala and koboko in the market square I am here to tell you it’s because they were wasting public funds.

Thank you HE Atiku Abubakar for picking Peter Obi as your running mate.
Nobody can call Peter Obi corrupt; he will tell you you’re wasteful and you can’t respond.
Let’s win this once and for all.
Peter Obi has more integrity than everyone in this Admin. Verifiable integrity.

Looks like Peter Obi will be the VP. That will be a solid solid solid solid pick. It’s only been 5 days but, so far, Atiku hasn’t put a foot wrong yet

Peter Obi was a fantastic pick by Atiku. At least, he is as cerebral as VP Osinbajo.

If Atiku has truly picked Peter Obi, then Buhari should start dualizing the road to Daura…

I want to first congratulate every Nigerian then South Easterners for the choice of Peter Obi as running mate of Atiku.
It’s not enough to always shout unity, this is what unity is.

I think @atiku & PETER OBI will make a great team.
They are both successful business men.
They both understand the benefits of industrialization.
And most importantly, they are both employers of labour..
What more can Nigerians ask for if not employment?#AtikuAndPeterObi2019 pic.twitter.com/ezDgysxIDQ
