Former Governor of Anambra State Dr. Peter Obi also the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has said that his visitation to Rivers State earlier last month was not for a gang-up.
Following Governor Nyesom Wike’s arrival from Abuja after he lost the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, ticket to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Obi was one of the prominent politicians that visited the Rivers State capital to meet the Governor behind closed doors.
There were suggestions that the former Anambra Governor, who dumped the PDP prior to the main opposition party’s presidential primaries, was in Port Harcourt to form an alliance with Wike or to convince him to join the Labour Party.
But Obi, while featuring on national TV Show on Wednesday, said he met Rivers Gov, Nyesom Wike to discuss issues concerning the development of Port Harcourt , pointing out that Wike is also his close friend whom he is free to visit at any time
