The All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, says reports linking him with a meeting with the five governors of the Peoples Democratic Party popularly known as G-5 were unsubstantiated and ‘evil intentioned.’
There had been media reports of Tinubu’s purported marathon meeting with the PDP governors in London, United Kingdom, on Tuesday.
He was said to have met with Governors Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Samuel Ortom (Benue), an allegation the Rivers State governor denied on Friday in Port Harcourt.

While insisting that he is entitled to meet any politician or political stakeholders of his choice, the former Lagos State governor further warned those peddling the rumours to desist forthwith.
