Southern Nigerian Governors Forum (SNGF) are presently in a meeting in Asaba, Delta State capital to discuss matters of insecurity and other issues disturbing the regions and the entire country.
Those physically in attendance include Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu; Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde; Rivers State Governor, Nysome Wike; Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi; Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun; Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano; Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi; among others.
They are hosted by, Delta State Governor, Okowa.
Governor Sanwo-Olu’s spokesperson, Gboyega Akosile, in a statement on Tuesday said the meeting is an intervention by the governors to jointly brainstorm and address burning issues in the Southern part of Nigeria.
The regional security meeting is holding less than twenty hours after Governor Sanwo-Olu hosted a very crucial stakeholders meeting on security in Lagos, to address the challenges posed to the state.
Like Lagos, the Southern Nigeria Governors Forum meeting is meant to critically evaluate the current security situation in the country, the implications for southern Nigeria and proffer an immediate and long-term solution so as to keep the region safe and secure for the citizens.
The Southern Nigeria Governors Forum is the umbrella body for all the seventeen governors in the South-West, South-South, and South-East geo-political zones of Nigeria.
