The governors held a closed door meeting for few hours and refused to speak with newsmen at the end.

The PDP has been in crisis since its presidential primary in May.

The opposition governors had insisted on the resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Iyorcha Ayu, since the emergence of former Vice President Abubakar.

The group also boycotted the inauguration of the party’s presidential campaign council held on Sept. 28.
