The former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and the former Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara have embarked on seeking to build what they called “all-inclusive Nigeria.”
The duo, who have been in the forefront, complaining and campaigning against the Muslim-Muslim Presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the party they belong to, said after a private visit to the Rivers State Governor, Nyeson wike today, July 30 said that their visit was based on “the quest and search to build an all-inclusive Nigeria.
At the end of the closed door meeting held at Governor Wike’s country home in Rumueprikom, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area, Dogara told Journalists: “we feel that as part of the agenda setting, we should meet with him and that is the reason why we are here. And for the rest, whatever it is, maybe in the future we can discuss that.
“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.”
Also Babachir Lawal told Journalists that their mission was a brotherly visit to the governor of Rivers State, adding: “we came to visit our brother. He (Wike) is our brother. So, every now and then, the Bible enjoins you to visit one another. That is what we just did.”
Former SGF said that the interaction with the Rivers State governor had nothing to with the meeting some northern leaders held in Abuja yesterday, July 29.
“No, there are many things that in the world for which you need to visit a brother, so there is nothing to do with our meeting in Abuja.”
