The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, and the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, yesterday, met with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.

The closed-door meeting was held at Governor Wike’s country home, in Rumueprikom, Obio-Akpor Local Council. Speaking with journalists after the meeting, Dogara hinged their visit on the quest for an all-inclusive Nigeria.

“Everyone agrees with us that Governor Wike is one of those indispensable political leaders. For us, it is a search to build an all-inclusive Nigeria. So, we feel that as part of the agenda setting, we should meet with him and that is the reason that we are here. And for the rest, whatever it is, maybe in the future we can discuss that.”

On his part, Lawal said: “We came to visit our brother. He (Wike) is our brother. So, now and then, the Bible enjoins you to visit one another. That is what we just did.”

Lawal said the interaction with Wike had nothing to with the meeting some northern leaders held in Abuja on Friday.

“No, there are many things that are in the world for which you need to visit a brother. So, has nothing to do with our meeting in Abuja.”
