Secretary of the group, Mr. Olawale Okunniyi, who briefed newsmen after the meeting, said the group also discussed means of fostering unity and dousing the current tension following the demand for Biafra among others.
He however stated that, the ELT through the meeting succeeded in forming a group to be known as Project Nigeria Movement, which he explained, has a mandate to serve as the engine room to reach out to all sectors of the nation in order to find a lasting solution to the current tension in the country.
Okunniyi added that after more consultation and resolution on the restructuring procedure, that ELT will come up with a communique on its position on the restructuring debate.
The secretary of the group emphasised that ELT is totally not in support of Nigeria’s disintegration.
