The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, on Saturday, declared that Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, deserved a Nobel Peace Prize for his role in securing the peace deal between warring parties; Ethiopia and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front.
Atiku said this on Twitter as he hailed Obasanjo, who used to be his boss.
He said, “I celebrate the extraordinary prowess of His Excellency, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, in bringing peace to Ethiopia. I am not surprised. I know my boss. He did the same thing in Liberia and São Tomé and Príncipe during our time in office.
“If for nothing else, he is most deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize, and I will nominate him when entries are open for nominations.”
The peace deal between Ethiopia and Tigray fighters comes after two years of devastating conflict that claimed thousands of lives and left millions in need of aid.
