Former governors of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday, March 25, 2016, reportedly held a meeting with the  National Chairman of the party, Senator Ali-Modu Sheriff.

Report said the meeting was about reconciling the aggrieved members of the party, in a bid to restructure it for possible take over of power in 2019.

The leadership of the party has been struggling to reposition it since the massive loss in the 2015 general elections that literarily collapsed the foundation of the party.

The party's internal crisis however deepened after Sheriff emerged the National Chairman as many PDP chieftains, including a host of those at the National Assembly, threatened to decamp unless he steps down.
