Contrary to media reports, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu Saturday said he didn’t hold any meeting with the five governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in London.
The former Lagos State governor, therefore, warned those writing unsubstantiated articles and peddling rumours on him to desist forthwith.
He, however, added that he was entitled to meeting any political actor or stakeholder that is important to his campaign and plans for the country and that desires to engage with him.
The G-5 forum led by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state has been at loggerheads with the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Other members of the G-5 are: Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Samuel Ortom (Benue).
The group, also known as Integrity Group, insisted that they would not support Atiku unless the party’s Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu is removed.
But Tinubu in a statement issued yesterday by his Media Office and signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman said the media report about the purported meeting as reports was to say the least, in bad faith but also evil intentioned
He noted that he was resolutely focused on his campaign objectives which are geared towards achieving victory in the upcoming presidential election in order to deliver the APC’s Action Plan aimed at giving a Renewed Hope to our people in all facets of their lives
