He stated this via his X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @renoomokri.

Omokri said Obasanjo supporting Obi was a strategy to divide the votes of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) because he does not like Atiku Abubakar.

“President Obasanjo does not like our candidate. But he is a strategist. He knew that if he came out openly against our candidate in the Peoples Democratic Party, it would win him sympathy votes during both the primaries and the general election. So, what did he do?
“He supported Peter Obi, knowing Obi stood no chance. His only purpose was to divide the PDP's votes and ensure that the person he was against did not win.”

The controversial personality said Atiku would have won the 2023 election if not for the divide-and-conquer strategy used by Obasanjo.

In another report by Legit.ng, the ruling All-Progressives Congress (APC) criticised Obasanjo's disapproval of the President Tinubu-led administration’s policies.

The ex-president earlier faulted Tinubu’s decision to remove petroleum subsidy and float the naira.

In a statement released to journalists on Sunday, May 26, by Kehinde Akinyemi, his special assistant on media, Obasanjo said although Tinubu’s policies were necessary, they were poorly executed.
