Governors under the platform of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday converged in Lagos for a meeting aimed at ensuring credible elections across the country.
Speaking during an interactive session with journalists Monday night ahead of a scheduled meeting slated to hold on Tuesday (today), Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger state said the postponement of the election has helped to reduce the tension in the country, especially following the victory recorded by the military in the northeast.
