Ripples Nigeria gathered that the governors who visited Ayade included Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State; Hope Uzodinma of Imo State; Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State; Simon Lalong of Plateau State; Mohammed Abubakar of Jigawa State, and Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State.

Political observers had speculated that Ayade was engaged in a feud with the PDP leadership over his loss during the recent state congress where he lost control of the structures.
