Aba: Mr Peter Obi, former Anambra State Governor and Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, paid a courtesy visit on the Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu at his Umuobiakwa, Obingwa LGA country home, on Saturday.

Political analysts view Obi’s visit to Ikpeazu as further compounding the woes of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate. Atiku’s emergence and his refusal to accept Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as his running mate, after he had been overwhelmingly chosen by the party has created a big rift within the party with several of the Governors standing with Wike, who they believe to have been wronged by Atiku.

Apart from Ikpeazu, other Pro-Wike Governors in the PDP include Samuel Ortom (Benue State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State) and Ifeanyichukwu Ugwuanyi (Enugu State). Some days ago, Obi had paid a similar visit to Governor Ortom of Benue, who equally eulogized him.

News about the visit was contained in a press statement signed by Sir Onyebuchi Ememanka, Chief Press Secretary to the Abia State Governor today, 23rd July, 2022.

The statement partly reads “Former Governor Obi Oyo Governor Ikpeazu that he was in Abia State to attend an event at the Mater Dei Catholic Cathedral Umuahia and in line with official Governor es and protocols, he had to come to see the Governor before proceeding to the event”.

“They discussed a wide range of issues ranging from Security, Economy and Politics”.

“They also had a private breakfast session”.

“Governor Ikpeazu presented him with a Souvenir bag containing the first ever Abia State Long Term Development Plan and the Abia State Industrial Policy which was presented to the Governor yesterday by ECOWAS Representative at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization

“Mr. Obi also spoke to newsmen for a few minutes before leaving for Umuahia”.
