Oyo state governor, Seyi Makinde on Wednesday, October 7, welcomed key members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the governorship election in Ondo state.
Makinde who made the disclosure in a post shared on his Facebook page revealed that he received Governor Nysome Wike of Rivers state and the former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso in Oyo state.
He went on to note that the duo were en route to Ondo state for the finale of the PDP governorship campaign rally to support their candidate, Eyitayo Jegede.
Recall that Makinde declared his support for the candidate of the PDP in the forthcoming Ondo state governorship election.
The governor who joined Jegede on the campaign train in Akure north area of the state disclosed this on his Facebook page.
Makinde said he joined Jegede on his way back from Edo state where he supported Governor Obaseki to defeat his closest rival, Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that after helping Obaseki cruise to reelection victory in Edo state, Wike vowed to visit Ondo as the constitution guarantees him the right.
The governor made this known on Tuesday, September 29, when he featured in a live television programme in Akure, Ondo state's capital.
Governor Wike has been perceived as a stumbling block that may pose a hurdle to Akeredolu's reelection considering his impact in the Edo election, prompting an alleged ploy channelled towards his possible visit.
