One insider told the Port Harcourt Telegraph in a chat that the atmosphere when both sides met was “conducive and friendly”.

It is believed that Rivers leaders were in Abuja to thank the President specifically for his kind disposition towards Rivers people which they acknowledged has resulted in the appointment of their sons into sensitive positions. 

It is also believed that the visit was intended to further strengthen existing ties between the Rivers people and the government at the centre.
