GOVERNORS of the South East met in Enugu yesterday behind closed doors in continuation of previous meetings, which reportedly centred around addressing economic and infrastructure development of the region.
Although the governors did not address newsmen nor issue a communique at the end of the meeting, the forum was believed to have considered the best ways the states could pool resources to move the region forward.
The governors, who met with other elected political office holders were said to have further deliberated on an earlier decision to send a delegation to the Presidency to discuss infrastructure decay especially the bad condition of federal roads in the South East.
They have also expressed desire to discuss the best way to approach recent protests by pro-Biafra agitation sparked off by the detention of the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, just as they urged groups agitating for his release to be cool.
A close source revealed that the governors watched a video projection by development experts believed to be an economic blueprint to boost South East.
Only Governors Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State alongside Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu were at the meeting.
Others at yesterday’s meeting were deputy governors of Anambra and Imo states, Dr. Nkem Okeke.
