Makinde reveals what G5 discussed with Tinubu

THE Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has revealed that the G5, also known as the Integrity Group, paid a visit to President Bola Tinubu to inform him on the current developments and the group’s stance for fairness, equity, and justice in the country.

Makinde, who was flanked by the group’s four other immediate past governors, agreed that country building is a challenging process that requires constant evaluation.

According to him, the G5 will continue to meet with the President to discuss the country’s future.

Addressing State House correspondents, the Oyo governor said, “Nation building is a very difficult task. You have to keep evaluating, you know what you’re doing, where you’re going. So, we have to keep seeing the President, you know, to let him know what is happening.

“The G-5, the Integrity Group, came to let the President know what we stood for: fairness, justice, and equity”.

This is Makinde’s third visit to the President, along with several members of the group.

Four previous governors from the party were present during the meeting along with Makinde. Among them were former Governors Nyesom Wike (River), Samuel Ortom (Benue), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu).

The current governor of Enugu State, Peter Mbah, was also present.

The G5, a group of aggrieved politicians within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), campaigned against the election of PDP presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and backed the return of power to Southern Nigeria.
