According to Omokri, the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kankwaso, and the former Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai will not be willing to work with Obi as many speculated.

The PDP chieftain, Omokri, disclosed this via a statement shared on his X page on Thursday, May 16.

Recall that Peter Obi met with Atiku, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, and Sule Lamido, a former governor of Jigawa from 2007 to 2015, in Abuja on Tuesday, May 14.

The meeting was the first between the two politicians after they lost out in the 2023 general elections.

However, the details of the meeting were not immediately known.

Reacting to Obi’s recent meeting, Omokri said no northerner of standing and in his right senses would agree to run for the 2027 presidency with the former Anambra governor of Anambra state.

Omokri wondered about the significance of Obi’s rapprochement with Northern powerbrokers in the PDP. He stressed that “right now, Peter Obi (he) is tainted.”

The PDP chieftain tweeted:
