Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has congratulated Peter Obi on his 61st birthday.
In a tweet on Tuesday, Atiku wished Obi, who is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), a memorable birthday.
“On behalf of my family, I wish my good friend, presidential candidate of the LP, and former Governor of Anambra State, @PeterObi, a memorable 61st birthday celebration. I wish you many more years in good health and vitality,” Atiku tweeted.
Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election.
In May, Obi resigned his membership of the PDP before the party’s presidential primary election.
The former Anambra governor joined the LP and won the ticket of the party.
Despite being in different political parties, the duo maintain a cordial relationship.
When Atiku won the PDP’s ticket, Obi congratulated him, calling him his “leader and dear elder brother”.
