The meeting which held behind closed doors had mostly politicians, Technocrats and chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC as members.

Coming under aegis of Southeast Group for Change, the group paraded former Senate President, Chief Ken Nnamani and Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state as leaders.

Members of the delegation arrived in a bus belonging to the Ken Nnamani Leadership Institute to the villa.

They included ‎the National Auditor of the George Moghalu; former Senators ‎Ifeanyi Ararume and Osita Izunaso; former House of Reps member, Sharon Ikeazor; former former Executive Vice-Charman of Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), Ernest Ndukwe.

Others were APC National Vice-Chairman (South East), Hon. Emma Eneukwu; member of the APC Board of Trustees, Chief Austin Edeze; Dr. Uzoma Obiyo; ‎and Chris Akomas.

Nnamani just like any other member of the delegation refused to speak on what transpired at the meeting when approached by State House Correspondents after the meeting.

Asked if the issue of Biafra came up ‎for discussion, the former senate president replied “No, no, not now!”

However there were feelings that Biafra may not be the issue that brought the people to the Villa as Nnamani visited the president with Governor of Katsina State, Bello Masari who was also a former Speaker of the House of Representatives recently.

It is expected that the State House would issue an official statement on the outcome of the meeting.
