Billionaire businessman and politician, Ned Nwoko has gone online to shower encomium on the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
He took to his official Instagram page to share photos he took with Atiku at a PDP rally in Delta state, and recounted his encounter with him during his tenure as Vice President twenty years ago.
According to Ned, years back, there was agitation in PDP for Atiku to contest against former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, when he wanted to run for second term.
However, he and his late friend, Bala Kaoke, visited him to convince him against running against Obasanjo and he humbly obliged.
Ned, who described Atiku as “our incoming president”, stated that based on his experience with him, Atiku is a good man.
The Delta state-born business tycoon wrote,
“Even though today was a pdp rally, it was an opportunity to reminisce with our incoming president on what happened over 20years ago when myself and my late friend Bala Kaoje met with the then vp to persuade him not to contest against his boss and how humble he was with his response that as a true muslim, he will support OBJ for his re-election despite the enormous pressure from the then pdp governors to contest against OBJ. He is indeed a good man.”
