Peter Obi meets Wike, Ikpeazu, Ortom, others
Peter Obi meets Wike, Ikpeazu, Ortom, others: The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, met with Governors of Rivers, Benue and Abia states, Nyesom Wike, Samuel Ortom, Okezie Ikpeazu, and former Governors of Ondo, Cross River and Gombe states, Olusegun Mimiko, Donald Duke and Ibrahim Dankwambo.
Peter Obi met with the Governors and former governors and other top politicians on Monday night at Wike’s private residence in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Mimiko shared a photo with the aforementioned politicians on his Twitter page, adding that it was nice to share some time with them.
He tweeted, “Nice to share some time last night with @GovWike @Donald_Duke @PeterObi @HEDankwambo @GovSamuelOrtom
@GovernorIkpeazu, Mohammed Adoke SAN and many other friends.”
Though the ex-governor did not give a reason for the meeting, The PUNCH confirmed that the meeting was held at Wike’s private residence in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital.
Obi had met Mimiko last week Thursday, 11 August, 2022. The motive for the meeting was not made public by either of the politicians.
The Labour Party presidential candidate had also visited Wike two months ago.
The closed-door meeting lasted for a few hours at the governor’s private residence in Port Harcourt.
Though the outcome of the meeting was not known, the two politicians were seen shaking hands in front of Governor Wike’s residence in pictures online.
Peter Obi’s first visit to Wike came amidst speculations that Wike may dump the Peoples Democratic Party, due to the fallout over the presidential primary of the party and the failure of the party’s presidential standard-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, to pick the Rivers governor as his running mate for the 2023 general elections.
This visit comes as speculations are rife that there seems to be a crack in the PDP ahead of the 2023 elections.
