‘Seun Ibukun-Oni, David Arin – Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Thursday, led the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to a strategic meeting with the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, in London.
The meeting, which took many by surprise, had three other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors in attendance.
They include Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, all close allies of Governor Wike.
Others present at the meeting include former Cross River State governor, Donald Duke and Senator Olaka Nwogu.
Although details of the meeting remain sketchy, Daily Courier reports that it was geared towards seeking Wike’s support in the forthcoming 2023 general election.
DAILY COURIER earlier reported that Atiku Abubakar departed Nigeria on Tuesday, to meet Wike, in London ahead of a reconciliation talks this Thursday.
