Although issues discussed at the meeting were not made public, sources close to the two ex-governors said they spoke on major national issues, including politics, economy, and insecurity.

The APC is expected to hold its national convention before the end of the year as clamour for the Chairman of the APC National Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Mai Mala Buni’s removal heightened.
