Some of the governors are part of a different PDP faction.
President Goodluck Jonathan held a closed-door meeting at the Presidential Villa on Sunday night with 16 Governors of the People Democratic Party (PDP).
The meeting is believed to be focussed on the crisis in the PDP that has led to the split of the party into two factions.
Some of the attendees are governors that belong to a new faction of the PDP announced on Saturday to be led by Kawu Baraje.
Sunday’s meeting kicked off at about 9.20 p.m. at the conference room of the First Lady’s residence.
Governors at the meeting include Babangida Aliyu (Niger), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano), Isa Yuguda (Bauchi), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Idris Wada (Kogi), Liyel Imoke (Cross River), Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom), Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara), Emmanuel Uduaghan (Delta), Ibrahim Shema (Katsina), Mukhtar Ramallan Yero (Kaduna), Garba Umar (Taraba Acting Governor), Saiidu Dakingari (Kebbi), Theodore Orji (Abia), Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe), and Jonah Jang (Plateau).
Also in attendance were Vice President Namadi Sabo; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim; National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki; and a senior lawyer and party member, Joe Gazama.
As at press time the meeting was still in progress.
