FCT, Abuja—Ahead of the 2027 election, Reno Omokri, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said on Tuesday, May 14, that no northern politician of standing “in his right mind” will run with Peter Obi.

Obi was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, in which he came third.

Omokri’s comment comes a day after Obi visited Atiku in Abuja. Recall that Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the PDP for the 2019 presidential election.

The prominent social media personality and ex-presidential aide wrote on X:

“Yes, people will agree to meet with him (Obi) out of courtesy. Some will do so to explore if they can get him to give them his bloc vote. But no northerner of standing in his right mind will run with Obi. Not Waziri Atiku, Rabiu Kwankwaso, or Nasir-El-Rufai.

“For Arewa, you can touch the north and be forgiven. But you cannot touch Islam and be forgiven.”
