Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, is due to meet with five unhappy governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to finalize the election’s rules, Daily Trust has confirmed.
The meeting will take place this week in one of the European countries, according to a reliable source close to the former governor of Lagos State.
The insider, who would not reveal the precise date of the meeting, claimed that it was being communicated to cement their agreement with the governors over the 2023 presidency.
He declared that the G-5 governors—Nyesom Wike of the Rivers, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Samuel Ortom of Benue, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu—would announce their favored presidential candidate to the public following the meeting.
Prior to the conference, it was learned that the governors were already in the UK.
“The support by G5 for Tinubu is going to be a game changer, akin to the declaration of the G6 for the APC in 2014.
“We are meeting with the group this week in Europe to firm up the arrangement. They are first-class nationalists who believe in the Nigeria project and we shall work together for the good of the nation,” he said.
