In Less Than 48 Hours, Obi Visits Atiku, Lamido

Please share

Is Mr. Peter Obi, the former Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Peter Obi, returning to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)?

That is the big question in the nation’s political circles. This may not be unconnected to Obi’s separate visits to Lamido, a top PDP leader, who is also a former governor of Jigawa State and Atiku Abubakar, the former PDP presidential candidate.

Details of the meetings, which held Sunday and Monday respectively, remain closely guarded, as the three men have remained mum.

Obi was Atiku’s running mate in the 2019 presidential election on the platform of the PDP, but he dumped the party a few months before the 2023 presidential election to run under the LP.

After both men lost to the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), now President Bola Tinubu, there have been talks among leaders of the nation’s major opposition parties to form a strong alliance or merge, with the aim of posing a strong challenge to the ruling APC in the 2027 elections.

Pat Utomi, a chieftain of the LP, had hinted of this possibility shortly after last year’s elections, following ameeting he held with Atiku.
