The meeting President Muhammadu Buhari held with governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday ended in deadlock.
Following the meeting, the State governors kept mum after the meeting as none of the governors addressed state house correspondents when they left the council chamber of the presidential villa.
The meeting which was held inside the Council Chambers started about 2.15pm and ended about 3.30pm.
At the end of the meeting which sources described as stormy, the governors who were approached for comment told State House correspondents that they had resolved not to speak to journalists.
Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), explained to reporters that a unanimous agreement was reached at the meeting not to talk to the media.
The contentious issue of tenure extension for members of the party’s National Working Committee was said to have dominated discussions at the meeting.
All APC state governors attended the meeting while Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and some top presidential aides and government officials also attended.
