“We have agreed to work together with the G-5; the agreement rhythm with our desire to forge together a government of national unity.

“When the history of this political epoch is written, the names of Wike, Ortom, Makinde, Ugwuanyi and Ikpeazu will be written in gold for the courageous decision to place national interest above all other considerations,” a source told Daily Trust.

He also said that the governors were to remain in PDP and work for the actualisation of Tinubu’s presidency which would come with “several offers and benefits” while the governors were free to still pursue their other political interests.

Another source close to a sitting governor confirmed the meeting but added that they were still fine-tuning the modalities of the alliance for the benefit of all parties.
