PM News reports that while speaking on the development, Valentine Obienyem, a media adviser to Obi said the interview had been postponed but did not give a date when it would be aired.

“The Nigerian public and Nigeria-watchers should please note that the much-talked-about CNN Interview with Mr Peter Obi is not holding today.
