Wike leads G-5 PDP governors into closed door meeting with President Tinubu

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, alongside a coalition of five aggrived serving and former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governors, code-named the G-5, convened a meeting with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa last night.

The closed-door session, shrouded in secrecy, primarily revolved around establishing a collaborative effort between the President and the former governors.
