Atiku is talent hunter, discovered Obi before keyboard warriors – Melaye

Atiku and Peter Obi

Former senator representing Kogi west in the eighth Assembly, Dino Melaye, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as a talent hunter who discovered Peter Obi of the Labour Party before keyboard warriors.

Melaye stated this while speaking at an event in Abuja on Saturday.

He said the former Anambra State governor was unknown nationally until Atiku “identified him”.

KEMI FILANI NEWS recalls that Obi, who was the running mate to Atiku in the 2019 general election, defected to LP shortly before the PDP primary election, which Abubakar won.

He said, “I am happy that everybody here is singing one song and that is Atiku for president. Many are already voting on social media but INEC has no voting centre on social media.”

“Atiku supporters are real, they are original. You can see them and they have PVCs. We have two very important people contesting this election. Atiku Abubakar, the Wazirin Adamawa and Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the APC.

“At 75, what is new that Atiku would be looking for other than to set the pedestal for the upcoming generation to have a life they can call their own? So this competent Nigerian that is highly mobile and administratively sagacious is coming to change the narrative.

“Obi is a fantastic Nigerian but he was not known nationally until Atiku identified him. Atiku is a talent hunter. Everyone who was a reformer in this country between 1999 to date was a discovery of Atiku.

“Atiku discovered Obi before keyboard warriors discovered Obi. Unfortunately, elections are not going to take place on social media.

“It is going to take place at the polling units. And those that would vote are the people here. So it is now operation votes must count.”

    I can’t reconcile this, you have only one contender “Tinubu”, yet the writeup discussed Obi more than him
    Pls educate me, was Peter a governor before Atiku discovered him?

    Smiles…the same was said about PMB, at 75 what does he want again? Now, what has he done with him being a general, experienced, and full of age…the same thing we heard then being repeated again and again. What old man can do, a young man can do it far better because of strength.

    Hey Mr publisher you can now brag to Nigerians that all Atiku’s supporters has PVC right? So you guys you know how to do it in a way that it is only you the Atiko supporters will vote on that day of election it is obvious. Atiku does not have the destiny of Obi in his palm beacause he discoverd him. Obi can become the president of Nigeria your Analysis is rubbish… A child can always be greater than his father.
