Recall that an 11-year-old primary school student, Tolu, was astonished to discover that his letter to the former governor of Anambra, Peter Obi, had reached him.

The message was a letter of invitation to the kid's graduation ceremony at Corona School in Gbagada, Lagos.

Obi got the letter, accepted the invitation, and turned up at the young student's school.

Reacting to the development, Omokri suggested that Obi's tọxic followers had isolated him, prompting speculation about rejoining the PDP.

The PDP chieftain tweeted:

"Remember I told you that Peter Obi posts everything that happens to him? Look. He met with an 11-year-old Corona pupil named Tolu and rushed to chase clout with it. Now, ask yourself why Peter did not do the same with photos and details from his meetings with Waziri Atiku Abubakar, Senator Bukola Saraki and Sule Lamido.

"If Waziri Atiku's media team had not posted the photo, you would not have known about the meetings. Like Nicodemus, he tried hiding the meetings by sneaking in at night. Why? Because he is tired of labouring in vain.
"He has realised how his toxic followers have alienated him from right right-thinking citizens of Nigeria, and he is considering jumping ship.
"Quick question: Should the PDP accept him back?"

Reno Omokri explains why Atiku won’t contest with Obi

Legit.ng earlier reported that Reno Omokri said no northerner will agree to contest the presidency alongside Peter Obi in the 2027 elections.

According to Omokri, Atiku Abubakar, NNPP flagbearer Rabiu Kankwaso, and the former Kaduna state governor Nasir El-Rufai will not be willing to work with Obi, as many speculated.

Omokri wondered about the significance of Obi’s rapprochement with northern powerbrokers in the PDP. He stressed that “right now, Peter Obi is tainted.”
