This is due to the governor of Rivers State’s outright declaration that he will not back PDP front-runner Atiku Abubakar’s bid for the presidency.
While having a falling out with the PDP leadership, Wike has been spotted not only with Obi but also with other key APC chieftains.
The relationship between Labour Party presidential flagbearer and Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike has sparked a contentious political debate.
Reports making rounds states that Wike, a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party has joined the Labour Party in the run-up to the 2023 general elections after meeting Peter Obi.
Although Wike has made it clear that he will not support Atiku Abubakar’s bid to become the PDP’s flag bearer, he has continued to rally support for the PDP in Rivers state in advance of the 2023 elections.
Has Wike joined Labour Party?
You might be interested to know that PDP leader Wike has not joined the ObiDatti movement but has argued that Peter Obi would make a good leader if given the chance to lead in 2023.
Surprisingly, despite his feud with Atiku and the PDP leadership, Wike has recently been seen and photographed with prominent members of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
In a recent development, the governor of Rivers state invited presidential candidate Peter Obi to commission a significant project in Rivers state.
This is in accordance with Wike’s invitation to Peter Obi to officially open the Nkpolu-Oroworukwo Flyover on November 17, 2022.
Nigerians are noting that this action has put an end to the rumour that Wike has joined the Labour Party.
However, the former PDP presidential aspirant, Nyesom Wike has not publicly stated this, so it is still only a rumor.
