President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday met with Igbo leaders in Imo state.
The meeting was held at a Town Hall in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The state government had a few days back disclosed that Buhari would be visiting Imo to commission some “significant projects” his government has executed.
Buhari’s parley with Igbo leaders is coming at the backdrop of agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The meeting was disclosed by one of Buhari’s Media Aides, Tolu Ogunlesi via his Facebook page.
“The President is now participating in a Town Hall Meeting with South-East Leaders, having gone round Owerri to commission a series of infrastructure projects by Governor Hope Uzodinma,” Ogunlesi wrote.
IPOB led by Nnamdi Kanu has frowned at President Buhari’s visit to Imo State. The pro-Biafra group had ordered a sit-at-home in protest against Buhari’s visit to the state.
Kanu, prior to his arrest, had severally accused Buhari of marginalizing the Southeast.
This is the first time Buhari is visiting the state since the tenure of Governor Uzodinma of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) started.
