Former BBNaija housemate, Cross Okonkwo has opened up on the close relationship he shares with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Speaking in an interview with The Punch, the reality TV star explained that Atiku took him In when he had no where to go, adding that he has shared a bed with the presidential candidate’s children.
Cross insisted that Atiku means well for the youth and he believes the former vice president is the best presidential candidate.
His words: “I have known him (Atiku) for many years. Me and his children have lived together and shared the same bed. When I did not have anywhere to go, he took me in. He has also taken care of me to an extent. That is the true definition of family. I know him very well and I believe he means well for the youth. I also think he is the best presidential candidate.
“I was attacked after I made that tweet (about Atiku being my father), and I wondered why.”
When asked if he called Atiku his father because of pecuniary gains, he replied: “If I eventually go into politics, it will be for the benefit of my constituency. However, I don’t want to become a politician because I don’t want people to insult me. I cannot collect money from Atiku, and I have never collected money to campaign for any politician.”
