The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the 2023 presidential elections, Peter Obi, on Monday, paid a visit to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and former Jugawa State governor, Sule Lamido, in their Abuja homes.

The outcome of the meeting was not revealed to the media.

However, Atiku first announced on his X (Twitter) handle that Obi paid him a visit, noting that he was always delighted to receive him.

Meanwhile, Paul Ibe, Atiku’s spokesperson, disclosed in an interview that the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, was instrumental in the exit of Peter Obi from PDP.

He also stated that Atiku was ready to zone the PDP presidential ticket to the Southeast.

He stated this during an appearance on Seun Okinbaloye’s Mic On podcast released on Saturday.

“Atiku did not force Peter Obi out of the party, Wike was instrumental in the exit of Obi because Wike had promoted the zoning of the presidency to the south.

“Atiku Abubakar had said that he was prepared to get himself off the ticket if the party zoned the ticket to the Southeast.

“Wike frustrated that effort because he believed that if it was zoned to the south, not the southeast, he would be in the best position to be able to get the ticket.”
