Five former Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who styled themselves as the G-5 in the prelude to the last presidential election which their party lost, were at Aso Rock Villa Abuja on Thursday for a closed-door parley with President Bola Tinubu.
The Governors are Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.
The G-5 Governors had worked against the presidential candidate of their party, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25 presidential election.
Leader of the group, Wike has visited the State House to meet with Tinubu three times in the past week.
Makinde spoke to State House correspondents on their mission on behalf of the group, which also calls itself the Integrity Group.
“Nation building is a very difficult task. You have to keep evaluating, you know what you are doing, where you’re going So, we have to keep seeing the president to let him know what is happening.
“And for this evening the G-5, the integrity group, we also came to let the President know what we stood for, fairness, justice, and equity.”
Asked where G-5 is going, he said: “We are going towards Mr. President, coming with us on the route for fairness, for justice and for equity in Nigeria”, Makinde explained.
