Three southern governors of the main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are currently in a closed meeting with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The Daily Trust reports that the governors are Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, who is a presidential aspirant of the party; Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State; and Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.
