The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, yesterday, disclosed that Southeast governors would soon converge on Owerri, the state capital, to deliberate on suitable security outfit for the region.

He said: “In the next couple of weeks, governors of the Southeast will hold a security summit in Owerri, with a view to fashioning out modalities for setting up a security outfit for our region.

“It’s necessary for every zone to be vigilant and have a security outfit, especially with the present situation in the country. We must be careful in the way we go about it…”

He also appealed to the people to observe non-pharmaceutical measures to safeguard their health against the disease.

The Executive Secretary, ISPHCDA, Rev. Sr. Maria-Joaness Uzoma thanked the governor for “uplifting the primary health care sector; provision of official vehicles, ambulances and other amenities needed for the smooth running of the Agency.”
