G5 regroups, meet Tinubu in Abuja

Published




The Nyesome Wike-led group of five Peoples Democratic Party past and sitting governors met with President Bola Tinubu late Tuesday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The meeting was preceded by a meeting held at the Abuja residence of Wike, who is now the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.

While details of the meeting were sketchy, it is believed that a working relationship between the President and the group was discussed.

According to Vanguard, a source privy to the meeting said members of the group first met in Wike’s residence for a few hours before heading to the Villa to meet with the president.

The source said that the meeting was all about finding accommodation for the former governors in the scheme of things and, of course, how they can work together.

The G-5 PDP Governors first met in Wike’s residence for a few hours before heading to the Villa to meet with the President.

“Exact details of what was discussed isn’t available to me at the moment, but from discussions held during the initial meeting at Wike’s residence, it was all about finding accommodation for the former governors in the scheme of things and of course, how they can work together,” the source stated.

The source noted that it was instructive that the former governors were meeting with President Tinubu barely 24 hours to the commencement of the Imo State PDP governorship campaign in Owerri and the growing tension over the occupant of the seat of party Secretary.

The former governors who attended the meeting were Nyesom Wike, immediate past Rivers State Governor and now FCT minister, former Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, former Enugu State Governor, Ifianyi Ugwuanyi, his Abia State counterpart, Okezie Ikpeazu and serving Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde.
