Nigerians have reacted to the meeting between the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and the Olu of Warri, His Majesty Ogiame Atuwatse III.
Naija News earlier reported that the former Governor of Anambra State visited the monarch at his palace in the ancient town of Warri, Delta State, on Friday.
The LP presidential candidate paid a courtesy visit to the Olu of Warri on the occasion of his first anniversary of the ascension to the throne.
Activities marking the Olu of Warri’s anniversary celebration continue at Ode-Itsekiri, the ancestral home of the Itsekiri, with cultural display and homage paid by Itsekiri sons and daughters home and abroad.
The week-long programme is expected to be rounded off on Sunday with a thanksgiving service at the Palace Church in Warri.
However, some netizens have taken to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to express their reactions to the meeting.
Below are some of the reactions.
