Three All Progressives Congress (APC) Southwest governors on Friday evening held a closed-door meeting with the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and former Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose.
The governors, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, were received by Wike at his private residence in Rumueprikom, Rivers State.
Also, in attendance at the meeting was Senator Olaka Nwogu.
However, neither Wike and Fayose nor the governors explained the reasons for the meeting as they declined to respond to newsmen’s questions.
Political analysts believe the meeting may be connected with crisis in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) aftermaths of its presidential primary poll, where Wike was not favoured and not picked as running mate to the party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The APC governors might want to woo Fayose and the Rivers governor, who was said to have been wronged by Atiku, to the APC and get the votes of the Southsouth for the party at the 2023 presidential election.
