The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has been mocked over his meeting with some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Obi had met with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu; former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, and Mohammed Adoke.
Others at the meeting include former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke and former Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwanbo, among others.
The meeting is the second time the former Governor of Anambra State would be meeting with Wike after dumping the PDP and declaring his presidential ambition on the LP platform.
Reacting to the meeting, a political activist, Deji Adeyanju, said Obi was being used to “catch a cruise.”
In a tweet, Adeyanju wondered why Obi, who was touted as the country’s saviour, would always meet PDP chieftains.
He wrote: “The person they say wants to save Nigeria from corrupt PDP and APC is always running to PDP folks, and he doesn’t know they are just using him to catch a cruise. That’s why I said the Obidents are PDP Lite. Good thing is that February is almost here.”
