Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has led the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi to a strategic meeting with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and other Peoples Democratic Party Governors.
The meeting took place today Thursday, August 25, 2022, in London.
Some of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors also in attendance at the meeting included the Benue state Governor, Samuel Ortom, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State.
Others present at the meeting include former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke and Senator Olaka Nwogu.
While details of the meeting have not been fully revealed to the public, it is, however, clear that it is not unconnected to the 2023 general election.
Governor Nyesom Wike who is the pillar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is not happy at the turn of events in his party, as a result, many other political party’s presidential candidates have been consulting him perhaps to get his support.
Meanwhile, there are reports that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Asiwaju Tinubu, has also met with Wike in London.
Similarly, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alh. Atiku Abubakar has also reportedly jetted to the UK to lobby Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
