Buhari, Tinubu won’t need medical treatment abroad, no Dubai for Atiku if Peter Obi becomes president: Okey Bakassi

Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi, says he is supporting Labour Party’s presidential flagbearer Peter Obi because he wants a working and better Nigeria.

In a tweet on Monday, the comedian said he wanted a working Nigeria, where President Muhammadu Buhari and All Progressives Congress presidential flagbearer Bola Tinubu would not have to travel abroad for medical treatment.

“I don’t want Atiku or Tinubu to fail. I just want Nigeria to succeed. I’ll support and vote for #PeterObi to fix Nigeria, so in their very old age, Buhari and Tinubu won’t be going to London for medical treatment, and Atiku won’t live in Dubai,” Okey Bakkasi reasoned.

Since he assumed office in 2015, Mr Buhari has spent over 200 days in a London hospital treating undisclosed ailments at different times. Similarly, Mr Tinubu spent close to three months in a London hospital. 

Mr Abubakar, a former vice president and ex-governor-elect of Adamawa, stays in Dubai.
