The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the Igbo leaders who attended the meeting included Bishop Sunday Onuoha, former Gov. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Mr Tagbo Amaechi and Chief Goddy Uwazurike.
The Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, National Security Adviser to the President, retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno, Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, also attended the meeting.
The agenda of the meeting, which reportedly was not up to an hour, was not privy to newsmen.
Participants at the meeting did not speak to the press on the outcome of their engagement with the president.
NAN, however, gathered from a reliable source that the gathering might have discussed some national issues, including security and socio-economic developments in the South-East zone of the country.
