Though the ex-governor did not give a reason for the meeting; it was however confirmed that the meeting was held at Wike’s private residence in Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital.

Peter Obi had met Mimiko last week Thursday, 11 August, 2022. The motive for the meeting was not made public by either of the politicians.

The Labour Party presidential candidate had also visited Wike two months ago.

The closed-door meeting lasted for a few hours at the governor’s private residence in Port Harcourt. Though the outcome of the meeting was not known; the two politicians were seen shaking hands in front of Governor Wike’s residence in pictures online.

 

Obi’s first visit to Wike came amidst speculations that Wike may dump the Peoples Democratic Party; primarily due to the fallout over the presidential primary of the party; as well as the failure of the party’s presidential standard-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, to pick the Rivers governor as his running mate for the 2023 general elections.
