The governors in attendance are Abdul’Aziz Yari of Zamfara, Ogun’s Ibikunle Amosun, Atiku Bagudu from Kebbi, and Aminu Masari of Katsina State.

However, neither the Senate President nor the governors commented on the purpose of the meeting when it ended.

The meeting held one day after the Senate President and some governors met with the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus.

The governors included Abdufatah Ahmed of Kwara, Nysome Wike of Rivers, Samuel Ortom of Benue, and Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State.

Also in attendance were former Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, and Senator Barnabas Gemade, among other prominent political figures.

Governor Wike had told reporters after the closed-door meeting that there was nothing wrong for political friends to come together and discuss.

“As top officials, we have come here to rally round him (Baraje) at this moment that he lost his lovely mother. We came here only for that purpose and even if you say the meeting is for politics, of course, when you see your colleagues, you need to chat and compare notes from what you have been doing,” he had said.
