Presumably, the cancellation might be in deference to the dinner that President Goodluck Jonathan would have with the governors later in the day.
Amaechi, who is also the Governor of Rivers State, was already consulting with other governors.
While majority of them were said to be interested in the meeting, they were said to have reasoned that there was no way they would be through with it before the dinner.
Both the meeting and the dinner have been fixed for 8 p.m.
While the meeting was to hold at the Rivers State Governors’ Lodge, Asokoro in Abuja, the dinner with the President, which would also be attended by other people, would hold at the Banquet Hall, inside the Presidential Villa.
