In Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, on Wednesday, Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, and Peter Obi, the Labor Party’s presidential candidate, had a private meeting.

Following his defeat in the party’s primary elections and failure to be selected as Atiku Abubakar’s running mate, Wike is widely believed to be preparing to leave the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

This meeting is coming amidst reports that Obi and his party are in talks with NNPP Presidential Candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso over a possible merger.

Political Analysts reveal that if the merger succeeds, it will create big problems for the Ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and the main opposition, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP
