The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, on Wednesday paid a visit to Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike at his private residence in Port Harcourt.
Obi and Wike had a meeting behind closed doors during the visit
Both men, however, did not speak on the purpose of the meeting, as Journalists were not granted access.
Peter Obi’s visit comes four days after the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi also met with Governor Wike at about 9:00 pm behind closed doors.
The meeting also comes days after Obi returned from Egypt where he went to “understudy by what miracle the third biggest economy in Africa after South Africa and Nigeria moved their power generation from 20,000 megawatts to over 40,000 megawatts in four years,” a statement by his aide stated.
Governor Wike, on the other hand, had run for the People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket but lost to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
Thereafter, he was considered a viable running mate to Atiku alongside two others.
He, however, lost the chance to Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.
