Media Scholar and public commentator, Professor Farooq Kperogi, has said former president Olusegun Obasanjo is supporting Peter Obi, presidential flag-bearer of the Labour Party for the 2023 election.
Kperogi also said former military Heads of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar and Ibrahim Babangida, are “decidedly” in the camp of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Writing recently in his weekly column, the US-based professor stated that the “loyalties” of “the owners of Nigeria” are divided.
“Their loyalties are split between Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi. While IBB, Abdulsalami Abubakar, and Aliyu Gusau are decidedly in Atiku’s camp, Obasanjo and Theophilus Danjuma support Obi.
“Goodluck Jonathan also appears to favour Obi, but he isn’t quite a member of this exclusive club in spite of being a former president.
“Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a bête noire to the ‘owners of Nigeria’,” Kperogi said.Follow us on social media
