I’m waiting for your next move, Okey Bakassi tells Peter Obi

Comedian-actor Okey Bakassi has weighed in his thoughts on Peter Obi’s withdrawal from the presidential race, saying that he is waiting for the latter’s next movie.

Mr Obi informed the national chairman of the PDP in a letter dated May 24 that his withdrawal from the party took effect on May 20.

Reacting in an Instagram post on Wednesday, Okay Bakassi applauded the former governor of Anambra State for his ‘courage and principles’.

He wrote: “I like the substance-based campaign he’s running, I admire his courage and principles….waiting for his next move.”

Obi tweeted a copy of the letter on Wednesday. “It has been a great honour to contribute to nation-building efforts through our party. Unfortunately, recent developments within our party make it practically impossible to continue participating and making such constructive contributions,” the letter reads.

“My commitment to rescuing Nigeria remains firm, even if the route differs,” he added.

The development followed a meeting Obi held at the official residence of the UK Prime Minister on Monday.PDP presidential primary is slated for this weekend in Abuja.
