The Peter Obi Support Network Group would be having their two million man march for the presidential aspiration of the former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi and his running mate, Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed on August 27, 2022 in Port Harcourt, commercial capital city of Nigeria’s oil rich Niger Delta region.


Just in:




The highly voluble and controversial governor of the State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has been locked in a subterranean jostle for the soul of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), where he lost the presidential election ticket to perennial candidate, Atiku Abubakar in a contest many believe was unfairly skewed to disfavor the governor.

The win by Atiku Abubakar has kicked quite a huge storm up for many political watchers see Atiku’s win as a slap in the face of the PDP Constitution that embeds rotation of power between the North and the South. A position the former Vice President under Chief Olusegun Obasanjo kicked against, just to enable him run yet again, despite the reality of current sentiments that power must be in the South after Muhammadu Buhari’s 8 year tenure.

Not only is Buhari a Fulani northern Muslim, so also is Atiku Abubakar.

“The idea of having a Fulani northern Muslim succeed another Fulani Muslim to make it a sixteen year long rule by just one tribe is causing disquiet in the South, considering that nepotism, insecurity, economic decline have been the hallmarks of this government makes the choice a bitter pill to swallow”, Tonye Amakiri from Port Harcourt told our correspondent on the phone.

Nyesom Wike who was the runner’s up in the PDP Convention to pick a candidate for the presidential election was snubbed by Atiku Abubakar in the choice of a running mate. The snub rankled Wike to no end. And he has thus made Port Harcourt uncomfortable for the supporters of Atiku Abubakar in Rivers State. Their campaign has also been hamstrung by the state government who see an Atiku inroad, a capture.

If the March for Peter Obi in Port Harcourt gets a free and unfettered rein on Saturday, it may indicate where Nyesom Wike’s soft heart may lie.
