Vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, will celebrate his 58th birthday on Friday at the presidential election tribunal in Abuja.

This is a departure from the former Anambra State governor’s tradition of celebrating with school children.

His special adviser on media, Valentine Obienyem, disclosed this while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Thursday after the sitting of the tribunal.

Mr Obienyem said it was particularly painful to Mr Obi that he would miss the opportunity of discussing with school children on the merits of education and the need to pursue it with determination.

In Obienyem’s words, “As you can see, Obi has been in court fighting for the restoration of the Atiku-Obi stolen mandate. Since they are closing their defence today, he will be in court and is already feeling the pains of missing his annual ritual of celebrating with students.”

Further, Obienyem assured that his principal would make out time to visit 20 schools he had already selected across the country as part of his birthday activities.

Born on the July 19, 1961, Obi, who turns 58 on Friday, is a successful businessman and the former two-term governor of Anambra State.
