I wish to appreciate our governors, South East Governors' Forum for their successful meeting yesterday which ended with the election of His Excellency Engr. David Umahi, the executive governor of Ebonyi State, as the new Chairman, South East Governors' Forum.
There would have been no better time for the coming together of our Governors within this our geographic cluster for the purpose of regional development than now.
It is of note that some of us have been calling on the Governors and other stakeholders to spearhead Regional Economic Integration.
On this note, I urge the governors not to see this their forum as mere political rituals, rather a platform for development of the region.
As for me, I am of the school of thought that our governors can achieve more by coming together. I therefore, congratulate the newly elected Chiarman while urging him not to allow ''oku agu nyere ya na aka, ka onyu naria ya ''.
