2023: Peter Obi Speaks On Alliance With Wike

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) and the Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi has stated that there is no conspiracy discussion with Governor Nyesom Wike Rivers State. 

It could be recalled that Peter Obi was one of the prominent politicians who visited Governor Wike at his Port-Harcourt residence behind a closed-door meeting after losing the People’s s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket and the vice-presidential ticket.

Following the closed-door meeting, there have been robust indications that Obi, who dumped the PDP days to the presidential primaries may well be forming an alliance with Wike in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

But Obi, while featuring on Arise TV’s Morning Show on Wednesday, said he met Wike to discuss issues concerning the Port Harcourt Port, pointing out that Wike is also his close friend.

According to him, as a Minister of Education, Wike helped him with funds to resolve some financial issues in the educational sector when he(Obi) was the Anambra State Governor.

“I met Governor Wike because he is the Governor of a state that is creative enough to have a future,” Obi said.

“The Port in Port Harcourt can help decongest the Port in Lagos and help to what I.want to do with the Port. We must generate the appropriate revenue that we’re doing today.

“I didn’t go to see Wike be another gang up or anything. Notwithstanding anything, I and Wike have been very close and very cordial. Everything I have invited him.

“Don’t forget that earlier this year I went to commission things for him. We’re friends. He’s one of all those who even supported me when I was Governor. He gave me…the Ministry of Education, when he was there had issues with teachers and he came and supported me with the UBEC money and everything.

“So, I’m going to visit every Governor to speak to them to understand that we should build a better Nigeria.”
