The governors had at a meeting with Buhari on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa, failed to agree on the path to follow.

They disagreed among themselves, leading to the deadlock of the meeting.

However, on Wednesday, the governors declared their support for Buhari on the issue.

In a news alert, the governors were quoted as having said: “We are on same page with President Buhari, no disagreement among us.”
