Babachir Lawal the former Secretary to the government of Nigeria and the former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Saturday met with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike in Rivers state.
They were led into a closed door meeting at the private residence of Governor Nyesom Wike in Port Harcourt.
After the meeting, Lawal said they had just fulfilled a biblical injunction to visit one another.
“We came to visit our brother,” he said. “He is our brother and every now and then the bible enjoins you to visit one another. That’s what we have just done.”
Yakubu Dogara said Governor Wike is an indispensable politician that fits into their aspiration to build an inclusive Nigeria.
“Everyone agrees with us that Governor Wike is one of those indispensable political leaders,” Dogara said. “And 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’s the reason why we are here.”
