The American news channel, CNN scheduled interview with the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has finally held after a series of cancellations.
Recall, Obi’s interview with CNN’s Zane Asher was initially scheduled for the 3rd of September, 2022, but failed to hold as it was moved to the 6th of September, but was unfortunately cancelled after a feature documentary on the British next prime minister, Liz Truss, aired instead.
However, after a series of cancellations, a check on the American media corporation’s channel showed the former governor of Anambra state on screen talking about insecurity in Nigeria with Zane on Friday evening.
