The 2023 presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 presidential election, Peter Obi, has visited his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, in a move that may not be unconnected with the 2027 presidential election..

Obi’s visit was announced by Atiku, in a tweet on Monday afternoon.

“It was my honour and privilege to host @PeterObi today. – AA,” the post read, with a photo of both men exchanging a handshake.

Although Atiku, a former vice president, did not reveal the details of their meeting, insider sources close to the candidates told Peoples Gazette that the meeting, which lasted about one hour, was about a merger towards the 2027 election.

The sources further disclosed that Obi initially met with Jigawa State former governor and PDP chieftain Sule Lamido in Abuja before his private meeting with Atiku.

Before Obi visited Atiku, there were speculations that the two may be plotting to form opposition to unseat President Bola Tinubu in the 2027 presidential election.

Recall that Obi was previously in the PDP, where he joined Atiku and served as his running mate in 2019.

However, in the build-up to the election, Obi the former Governor of Anambra State defected to the LP, where he contested the presidential race.

Both Obi and Abubakar lost their presidential bids to the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, President Bola Tinubu.
