Revealed! Tinubu’s meeting with Wike, Ortom, Makinde on Tuesday

 

The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday held a meeting with three state governors of the main opposition Peoples Democratic party (PDP) – Nyesom Wike (Rivers State), Samuel Ortom (Benue State) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo State).

The meeting, held in Europe, is not unconnected with the 2023 general election. Sources close to Wike disclosed that the meeting held in another country other than France.

Tinubu left Nigeria on Monday for Europe on a week break. He is expected in London, as well.

“Yes, we left Nigeria to meet with Tinubu on Monday. We initially thought it would hold in France because that was where Tinubu went the last time he left the country. We however got signal close to our time of departure that we should proceed somewhere else.

“Governors Ortom and Makinde who have been supporters of Wike from the beginning were also on the trip,” the source said.

The source squealed that the meeting was connected designed for the APC candidate to get Wike’s camp support for Tinubu in next year’s election.

“Yes, the discussion was centred on the 2023 election. The Tinubu camp know how important votes from Rivers State are and are looking for how to get Wike to work for them,” he also added.

While it may be hard for Wike to leave the PDP because of some of his followers who are already contesting for elections in the party, the Tinubu camp is expecting him to use his influence in the state to work for them and deliver Rivers State for the APC.

Since Wike lost the Peoples Democratic Party presidential primaries to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, he has rebuffed moves by party leaders to placate him.

He has also many times threatened many members of the PDP in the state who are loyal to Atiku, closing down some businesses owned by them.

Efforts to also reconcile with him have become hard, as the meetings between his camp and Atiku’s team ended in deadlock. (Adapted from a report by Western Post)

  1. IT HAS STARTED. THE IMPENDING IMPLOSION OF THE PDP.

    The news already breaks that one of the stalwarts and lieutenants of Governor Wike has moved to the APC. A foot soldier to test the waters as prelude to the foreseeable.

    SOME OF US. INCLUDING, ALL DISCERNING MINDS SAW THIS COMING. THE DECEIT WITH SUFFOCATING INSINCERITY THAT PERVADED AND DRIVING THE PDP UNDER.

    As enumerated in the below link, the unknowing and perhaps unaware self-confession of Governor Ortom of Benue state where he laid bare and let the whole world into the inner internal wranglings and susurrus that might possibly consume the PDP.

    Governor Wike may pass for a garrulous uncouth temperamental lone voice against the INJUSTICE meted out to him during the presidential primaries of the party. He may have a genuine axe to grind with the party that lack principle and cannot hold it together.

    THE FALLOUT OF THE PDP PRIMARIES IS STILL GENERATING A HEAT THAT HAS REFUSED TO ABATE AND DIFFUSE. AN ALBATROSS HANGING AND WATING IN THE WINGS TO EXTINCT A PARTY ALREADY ON ITS WAY TO UNDER.

    It is a matter of time before the projected predictable own self-destruct Kama of the PDP as a political party comes to fruition in the annals of the political space of Nigeria.

    IT WILL HAPPEN.
