Although the agenda of the meeting is not made public, political feelers opine that the meeting might not be unconnected with the controversies surrounding the party primaries which pitched the party leadership with some of the governors.

However, briefing the State House correspondents after the meeting, Mr Okorocha said: “We came to review the various crises characterizing our primaries especially the APC with a view to finding solution.

“So, we are looking for a way out in this regard. We are going to find solution, our party believes in justice, equity and fairness.
