He said they came to tell the president about their avowed commitment to fairness, justice, and equity.

Their visit was drafted by that Akwa Ibom State Governor Umo Eno, who reiterated his readiness to work with the president in the interest of his state.

G5, which is believed to be friendly with President Tinubu, contributed to his victory in the February 25 poll.

According to observers, the governor and former governors may take advantage of their cordial relationship with the President to further their political fortunes as well as those of their various states.

The Oyo governor also disclosed that the G5 members came to remind the President of what they represent, which he said includes fairness, justice, and equity.

He said: “Nation-building is a difficult task. You have to keep evaluating what you are doing, where you are going. So, we have to keep seeing the President to let him know what is happening and for this evening, the G5 (the Integrity Group), we came to let the President know what we stood for; fairness, justice, and equity and we haven’t changed.”

Makinde said: “We’re going towards Mr. President coming with us on the route for fairness, justice, and equity in Nigeria”.
