In an interview published on This Day, Jonathan said Atiku would perform well on the ticket of the PDP.
He also advised him to reach out to former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
The former president said:
“He can’t get the APC ticket. If Atiku gets our party ticket, he would compete well. He’s always a passionate politician.
But he would have to reach out to our boss, Baba OBJ, the boss of all bosses. We’ve all learnt at different times that you ignore OBJ at your own peril. OBJ has the magic wand, respected at home and abroad.”
