2023: Wike, Peter Obi meet again in Port Harcourt

By our reporter| Labour party presidential candidate, Peter Obi on Friday met with governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state in Port Harcourt.

The meeting was held behind closed doors at the private residence of the Rivers state governor.

Friday’s meeting is the third one in as many months between the duo having previously met in Port Harcourt and the United Kingdom.

“It was nice hosting my brother Peter Obi once again,” Wike said in a Facebook post.

Although the purpose of the meeting is not yet known, it may not be unconnected with Obi’s presidential ambitions in 2023.

Earlier,  Obi had met with Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde in Ibadan.

“I was at Ibadan, and I visited my brother and friend, HE Seyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo State as part of my consultations ahead of the 2023 general elections,” Obi said in a tweet.

“We had very frank and constructive discussions.”

Although both Wike and Makinde are members of the Peoples Democratic Party, they are part of a camp within the PDP that has vowed not to campaign for the party’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar unless National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu steps down.
