Jubilations erupted in various parts of Nigeria on Friday as a former governor of the state, Peter Obi, was named the Vice Presidential candidate to Abubakar Atiku of the Peoples Democratic Party for the 2019 general election.
Peter Obi is trending on tweeter as it is mentioned 27000 times since the announcement was made this afternoon as at the time of filing this report.
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.
