See What Reno Omokri Said To Defend Atiku’s Support For Muslim-Muslim Ticket In 1993

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential contender, endorsed the Muslim-Muslim ticket in 1993, according to former presidential adviser Reno Omokri.

Following revelations in the former vice president’s book that he might have backed the Abiola-Kingibe ticket in the 1993 presidential election, Omokri made this statement on Monday.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, Atiku backed MKO Abiola’s bid for the vice-presidential nomination by supporting him in his memoir, “My Life.”

According to Atiku’s autobiography, Umaru Musa Yar’adua, the late former president, was furious at the time over Abiola’s betrayal in choosing Kingibe over Atiku.

On Monday, Omokri suggested that Atiku might have backed the Abiola-Kingibe ticket in 1993 because there wasn’t any terrorism or banditry.

In 1993, the Muslim-Muslim ticket was unquestionable, the former presidential assistant said, confessing that he had also backed Abiola in his bid to become president.

He wrote: “Yes, Atiku may have supported Abiola-Kingibe Muslim-Muslim ticket in 1993, but this is 2023. In 1993, there was no Boko Haram or ISWAP. We did not have bandits. There was no Hisbah in Kano. Muslims were not heading all 3 arms of government. Even me, I supported MKO!”
