The four governors who met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said they had a “robust and fruitful discussion” with the president.

They, however, refused to disclose what was discussed with the president.

The four governors who belong to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party include Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom, Nyesom Wike of Rivers and Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa states.

The meeting held inside the president’s office at State House Villa, Abuja.

Speaking with State House correspondents after the meeting, Governor Dickson of Bayelsa said, “My colleagues and I came to have audience with the president to discuss issues pertinent to our country and pertinent to our respective states.”

The Bayelsa governor also said they had “a robust and fruitful discussion with the president and he promised to look into it in anyway possible.”

When pressed for details of what was discussed, Mr Dickson simply said “ we don’t want to go into those details.”
