Why Obasanjo, APC chieftain meet Wike in Port Harcourt
Obasanjo is expected to deliver a keynote speech at the “2023 Port Harcourt International Conference” which is taking place at the Dr. Obi Wali International Conference Centre in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
The conference is themed, ‘Deepening Democratic Culture and Institutions for Sustainable Development and Security in Nigeria’.
However, the presence of Fayemi, who is a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), at the country home of Wike, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governor, is yet to be understood.

Wike is the leader of the aggrieved PDP governors known as G5 or Integrity Group and is calling for the resignation of the party chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to pave way for Southern leadership of the party in the name of justice, equity and fairness.
Due to the refusal of the PDP leadership to meet up with the demand of the G5 in the PDP, Wike has recently had some political romance with many opposition leaders.
On the other hand, Obasanjo recently endorsed the candidacy of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate ahead of his counterparts in the PDP and APC.
