The two meetings were held behind closed doors.

NAN reports that the president first met with the governors of Zamfara, Akwa Ibom, Edo, Katsina, Ondo and Imo before meeting with the South East politicians led by former Senate President, Ken Nnamani.

‎The 18-member delegation, under the aegis of South East Group for Change, comprised mainly members of the ruling APC.

The delegation included the National Auditor of APC, George Moghalu; former Senators ‎Ifeanyi Ararume and Osita Izunaso.
