Valentine Obienyem, the Special Adviser to former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has reacted to the news making the rounds online that his boss is the vice presidential candidate of one of the leading aspirants on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abukakar.

In a statement on Wednesday, Obienyem dismissed the news as mere speculation.

He said: “When I read the news in the papers and on social media, knowing fully that no presidential candidate has discussed such issue with him otherwise I should have known.
“When I saw the news, I exclaimed: ‘Who is the author of this mischief?’

“I immediately brought the news to the attention of my boss who is rounding up his speaking engagements in UK and the USA and he was equally surprised that such speculation should be on at this time, when the pre-occupation of all Nigerians should be how to end the killings in parts of the country and return the country back to sanity.”

Obienyem appealed to Nigerians to disregard the news adding that it was created from the imagination of those spreading it.

He said what preoccupied the PDP now was rebranding and producing a formidable flag beaer not who would be running mate.

Obienyem, however, commended the writer for at least recognising what he called Obi’s superlative performance as the Governor of Anambra in all areas, especially setting the record as the only governor that left over N75 billion in savings at handover and winning the best governor in financial management and provision of infrastructure.
