Tambuwal said that the closed-door meeting on the party’s forthcoming national convention which started around 3 p.m., was very fruitful.

“We have been meeting since 3 p.m., meeting for about 7hours. Very fruitful deliberation.

“You must have seen that we received leaders of our party in various other states where we don’t have governors.

“We had a robust discussion with them on how to move the party forward, bringing all the leaders together, not only working towards a best national convention but even beyond that.

“So that we can continue to sustain the goodwill that PDP is enjoying in Nigeria.

“And send the right signal to Nigerians that we are truly prepared and working together as a family to ensure that, by the grace of God, comes 2023, we present a very united force that will rescue Nigeria from the misgovernance of APC.”

Tambuwal stated that the governors discussed the party’s elective national convention scheduled for Oct. 30 in Abuja.

The forum Chairman said that the governors and the party leaders also discussed the PDP preparations for the Anambra governorship election.

He said that the governors were united in working for the victory of the party’s candidate in the Anambra governorship election, Mr Vincent Ozigbo.

The meeting was attended by PDP governors of Bauchi, Rivers, Adamawa, Benue, Oyo, Enugu, Edo, Delta, Taraba and Bayelsa states.
