Some Governors of Peoples Democratic Party today met at the Akwa Ibom State Governor's Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja, to review the strength of the party ahead of the 2015 elections. This follows the defection of some rebel governors to the All Progressives Congress, with more governors reportedly planning to follow suit.
Those in attendance are the governors of Abia, Ebonyi, Kogi, Kebbi, Bauchi, Enugu, Katsina, Cross River, Plateau, Delta, Taraba and Akwa Ibom. It was gathered that they will brief President Goodluck Jonathan immediately after the meeting.
The G2 Governors, Aliyu Babangida of Niger State and Sule Lamido of Jigawa State, are currently in a closed-door meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan at the presidential villa.
The outcome of the meeting of the 12 PDP Governor remains sketchy as no one was ready to talk to the press. All the governors headed to the villa.
