Atiku shared images of their closed-door discussion, captioning it, “It was my privilege to host @PeterObi today.”

In an interview, Atiku’s spokesperson, Paul Ibe, revealed that the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, played a role in Peter Obi’s departure from the party.

Ibe also mentioned Atiku’s readiness to allocate the PDP presidential ticket to the Southeast.


During a segment of Seun Okinbaloye’s Mic On podcast, Ibe stated, “Atiku did not push Peter Obi out of the party; Wike was influential in Obi’s exit due to his advocacy for zoning the presidency to the south.”

Ibe further explained Atiku’s stance, noting, “Atiku Abubakar expressed his willingness to step aside if the party decides to zone the ticket to the Southeast.

“However, Wike hindered this effort, believing that a southern zone other than the southeast would favor his chances of securing the ticket.”
