Reno Omokri, political influencer and a former associate of President Jonathan said he supports Atiku Abubakar for president because of his achievements especially in the area of job creation.
Omorki said, “I support Atiku because he is a job creator. He founded Intels in 1988. Before he became Vice President in 1999, Intels was the biggest port logistic firm in Africa and was worth close to a billion dollars. Please research it. Through that company and other companies in his Priam group, Atiku employs more people than many state governments.
For those accusing him of collecting alms to support Atiku over Peter Obi, Omokri reminded them that such words they used on him does not help Obi’s campaign.
He said, “Nigeria needs jobs for our youths to end unemployment, without which we can’t end insecurity. And I believe Atiku is better placed than Peter Obi to achieve that. That is my choice. Please respect it without accusing me of collecting money or seeking appointments.
“Be careful the types of things you, his supporters, say. Peter respects me and will never use the type of derogatory word you just used on me to describe me. You may mean well, but many times you alienate Peter from people who can help him. Thank you and may God bless you.”
