Nigeria’s President, Bola Tinubu, is currently engaged in a meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Present at the meeting are former Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike, former Delta State governor James Ibori, and the current Oyo State governor Seyi Makinde.
Arrival of Former Governors and Current Governor
The former governors and the sitting governor arrived at the State House around 4:20 pm, indicating the significance of the meeting and the importance of the discussions being held.
Political History and Connections
Bola Tinubu and James Ibori share a political history, as they both served as governors from 1999 to 2007.
On the other hand, Nyesom Wike recently completed his eight-year term as the governor of Rivers State, contributing to his standing as a prominent figure in Nigerian politics.
Political Dynamics and Speculations
Both Wike and Makinde are members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
However, they were part of a group of governors known as the G-5, who were allegedly involved in activities that went against their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during the elections held on February 25.
In contrast, James Ibori, despite being affiliated with the PDP, has faced rumors suggesting his support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the recent general elections.
These rumors have further fueled speculation about his potential shift in allegiance to the APC, possibly due to a loss of influence within the PDP in Delta State.
Ongoing Conflict and Leadership Issues
While the meeting brings together these influential political figures, it is worth noting that Nyesom Wike is reported to be embroiled in an ongoing conflict with the leadership of the PDP.
The nature and implications of this conflict are yet to be fully disclosed.
