Governors Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State, and his Akwa Ibom State counterpart, Umo Eno, are the early arrivals at the Akwa Ibom State Governor’s lodge, the venue of the inaugural meeting of the PDP Governors’ Forum in the current dispensation.
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has also arrived at the meeting.
Makinde, alongside former governors of Rivers (Nyesom Wike); Abia (Okezie Ikpeazu); Enugu (Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi); and Benue ( Samuel Ortom), who has been boycotting PDP events joined party faithful in Bauchi in June where he called for a healing process to begin, following the divisions within the party in the months leading to the general election.
The meeting, which is expected to play host to all 13 governors elected on the platform of the party, will deliberate on a wide range of issues including the state of the nation as well as that of the PDP Governors’ Forum, the leadership of the party, among others.
Also, present at the meeting are Sheriff Oborevwori, Dauda Lawal, Duoye Diri, and Ahmadu Fintiri, governors of Delta, Zamfara, Bayelsa, and Adamawa respectively.
