Former Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) on Friday led South West All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to woo Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State to join APC.
The meeting, on Friday, at the private residence of the Rivers governor, had as head of delegation Lagos State governor, Sanwo-Olu.
In the entourage were Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, and that of Ekiti state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Also seen at the residence of the Rivers governor were Senator Olaka Nwogu and former Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, all of who declined to comment on the meeting.
With the host, Wike, also evasive on baring the mission of the visitors and outcome of the meeting, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain in Rivers said: “There is nothing hidden under the sun.
“They have their reasons for not spilling what transpired now, but at the right time, someone would speak if he has to.”
Speculations are rife that the move is all about taking advantage of the fragile state of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the moment to win Wike over to the ruling APC.
