A former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, on Saturday met with the Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike in Port Harcourt.

The meeting was held at Governor Wike’s country home in Rumueprikom, Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting, Dogara said the visit was hinged on the quest and search to build 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 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.”

Similarly, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation explained that it was a brotherly visit.

“We came to visit our brother, Wike). Every now and then, the Bible enjoins you to visit one another. That is what we just did.”

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

At the Abuja meeting, Dogara and Lawal had rejected the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
