Makinde, Wike, Ibori okay Tinubu’s position on fuel subsidy
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday met with the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, and the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, as well as former governor of Delta, James Ibori.
The visitors had walked into the Villa about 4:25pm, moments after the Chief Executive Officer of Access Holding Plc, Mr. Herbert Wigwe, who had been to the President’s office, walked out.
The agenda for the meeting was not made known. But speaking with newsmen later, Makinde and Wike, in their separate remarks, expressed support to the Federal Government’s decision on fuel subsidy.
Makinde said: “It’s something that is on top of public discuss right now. We know it’s a tough decision for the people and he needs the support of everybody to see this through.”
On his part, Wike said: “We came to give him (President) support.
We are in support all the decisions he is taking. It shows that he is prepared for the job and there is nothing bad about that. It requires tough decisions for a country to move forward.”
