President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday held a closed-door meeting with some South East politicians led by former Senate President, Ken Nnamani, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The meeting came a day after members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) held demonstrations in the South East and South-South parts of the country.

‎The 18-member delegation, which arrived in a bus belonging to the Ken Nnamani Leadership Institute, came under the aegis of Southeast Group for Change.

They comprised mainly members of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).

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

Also in the team were the 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 and other member of the delegation ‎declined to speak with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting.

As he walked past the journalists, Nnamani only replied the question from journalists on whether the issue of Biafra came up ‎for discussion during the meeting with: “No, no, not now.”

No official statement has been issued on the meeting at the time of filing this report.
