According to the Minister of Information, Mohammed Idris, anybody could decide to collaborate and meet.

He said, “The government is not thinking about them at all. We are focused on delivering on the mandate handed over to President Bola Tinubu. With the good works the government is doing, he is already the toast of Nigerians.

Just a few days ago, the Federal Government inaugurated three critical gas infrastructure projects in Imo and Delta states to drive the country’s gas sector. The projects are the ANOH-OB3 CTMS gas pipeline and ANOH gas processing plant in Assa, Ohaji/Egbema in Imo State.

“We are not bothered by the games they are playing, as they are revealing their mindset. They are mere politicians who only think about the next election.

“President Tinubu is a true statesman who is concerned about fulfilling his promises to Nigerians. At the moment, he is very busy resetting the economy of our country for the better, laying the foundation that ought to have been laid decades ago.”

Meanwhile, former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has reacted after his principal, Atiku Abubakar hinted on supporting Peter Obi in the 2027 polls.

Recall that Atiku in an interview with BBC Hausa said he will not hesitate to support Obi in the next election if the party picks the former Anambra governor.

Reacting to the development, Omokri who is a strong critic of Peter Obi wrote on X:


“Any party that makes the mistake of fielding Peter Obi as their Presidential or Vice Presidential nominee, and anybody that errs by making him their running mate, whether Waziri Atiku Abubakar, Rabiu Kwankwaso, or Nasir El-Rufai, can kiss Southwest and South-South votes goodbye. You will not even get the Constitutionally required 25%.
