A former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi has dissociated himself from the flying stories that he has been selected to pair with Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential elections as a running mate.
Obi disclosed this in a press statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Valentine Obienyem, in which the story was described as “mere speculation.”
The statement read, “When I read the story in the papers and on social media, knowing full well that no presidential candidate has discussed such issue with him (Obi), I exclaimed and said ‘Who is the author of this mischief?’
“I immediately brought the news to the attention of my boss who is rounding off his engagements in the UK and the USA.
“He was equally surprised that such speculation should be on at this time when the pre-occupation of all Nigerians should be how to end the killings in parts of the country and return the country back to sanity.”
The press statement informed the public to eschew the story.
