After days of exchange unpleasant allegations and aspersions, the warring governors who both belong to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were reconciled by Governor Nyesom Wike in his private residence. Wike and Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa jointly convened a meeting in which Ortom and Mohammed reached a truce. The PDP governors embracing each other in the said meeting proved this new welcome development.
