Yesterday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu had a meeting with former governor of Delta State James Ibori, the current governor of Oyo State Seyi Makinde, and the immediate past governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike.
At approximately 4:25 in the afternoon, the guests entered the Villa, arriving just a few minutes after Mr. Herbert Wigwe, the Chief Executive Officer of Access Holding Plc, had left the President’s office and vacated the building.
It was not made clear what would be discussed during the meeting’s agenda. However, when speaking with newsmen later, both Makinde and Wike, in their separate remarks, expressed their support for the decision made by the Federal Government regarding the fuel subsidy.
According to Makinde, “It is something that is at the forefront of public discussion right now.” We are aware that this will be a challenging choice for the people, and we believe that he will require the support of everyone in order to see this through.
For his part, Wike stated that they had come to offer their support to the President.
All of the choices that he is making will have our full backing. This demonstrates that he has prepared himself adequately for the role, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. For a country to make progress, it is necessary to make difficult decisions.
