2023 Presidency: Tinubu meets Wike, Makinde, Ortom in London

By Adekunle Dada

Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is reportedly meeting with Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers, Samuel Ortom of Benue and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State in London, United Kingdom.

According to Vanguard, a source privy to the meeting said that the governors on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, left Nigeria to meet with Tinubu on Monday night.

Ortom and Makinde are close allies of Wike, who fell out with the PDP standard bearer, Abubakar Atiku, following the primary election in May.

Although details of the meeting were yet to be ascertained, it may not be unconnected with potential alliance of Wike to cede support for Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.

Wike has been widely speculated to leave the PDP.

Since Wike lost PDP presidential primaries to Atiku he has been heaping jibes and jeers to Atiku and other top ranking members of the party.

Though it was widely reported in some online media that the meeting held in France, but Vanguard gathered that the event happened in London.
