Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar played host to former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, on Monday.

Although the reason for their meeting was unknown as of the time of filing this report, Atiku confirmed the meeting via his X social media network on Monday when he said, “It was my honour and privilege to host Peter Obi today. -AA”

Recall that Atiku was the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while Obi was the flagbearer for the Labour Party (LP) during the 2023 general election.

It is worth noting that Obi was previously in the PDP but dumped the party for LP in the build-up to the last general elections.

Atiku and Obi were the PDP’s President and Vice President candidates in the 2019 elections. However, the duo went their separate ways in the following election over political interests.

Their latest reunion, however, has generated a barrage of reactions on social media as many netizens speculated that the duo are plotting to form opposition ahead of the 2027 election.

The reactions included but not the least as below:

“@OBAF4U – The earlier we realize the system is not working, the better. All hands must be on deck to steer this faltering ship to safety.”

“@Ollyskay – Hmmmm. Something nice is going on here. It would be nice if they both collaborate in the coming elections…that’s the only way they can become a real competition to the people presently in power.”

“@__Sonofglory – This is politics and let’s be factual with ourselves. If they don’t form an alignment, they can never remove APC in power. It’s not like the alignment would work, but it would give them proof of doubt.”

“@DGreatBundee – Your Excellency Sir, you have seen and observed clearly without any bias that they people are with @PeterObi, sometimes irrespective of one’s great political achievements they people want who they want. Kindly endorse and support @PeterObi for a New Nigeria.”

“@jrnaib2 – Lesson learnt! United Opposition 2027.”

“@dekezman01 @PeterObi in 2027.”

“@Ahmadjr_77 – Reunite and save our country, please.”

“@korede_coded1 – Peter Obi and his Boss, nice one. The Country need a formidable opposition to help them from the APC syndrome.”

“@MuaMuaNigeria – Both of you will never be president of big.”
