The meeting was attended by Governors Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu (Niger), Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso (Kano), Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa) and Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara). No agenda was made public, but the meeting is believed to have been convened to try to mend fences between the governors and the president.
Amaechi leads a faction of the Nigerian Governors Forum which the president has not recognised.
Four of the six governors at the meeting had been going round the country holding consultations with key leaders, to try to convince them to help in solving the political crisis in the country.
