Atiku Abubakar lauded his former boss, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, and made a call for his face to be on the new Naira note.
He also celebrated him on the role he played in bringing peace to the Ethiopia-Tigray conflict that began on
November 3, 2020.
Atiku posted this on his Twitter handle on Saturday. He wrote:
“I celebrate the extraordinary prowess of His Excellency, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, in bringing peace to Ethiopia. I am not surprised. I know my boss. He did the same thing in Liberia and São Tomé and Príncipe during our time in office.
“If for nothing else, he is most deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize, and I will nominate him when entries are open for nominations.
He continued, “On behalf of my family, I congratulate you, President Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, for successfully ending the Ethiopia-Tigray conflict. And I thank God for the gift of wisdom and foresight He gave you, which you have used creditably to steer Nigeria and Africa on the right path.”
Atiku served as Vice President during the Presidency of Olusegun Obasanjo from 1999 to 2007.
