Disturbed by the current alarming insecurity in South East Nigeria, governors and leaders of the zone will on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, converge in Enugu State for an “urgent meeting to deliberate the unfortunate development.

The ugly development has resulted in the deaths of several people in the region, including the recent  killing  of Dr. Chike Akunyili, the  husband of late  Nigeria’s  information minister, Prof. Dora.

According to a  memo  by Ebonyi State  Governor and chairman of South East Governors Forum, Engr. David Umahi, stated that , leaders in the meeting will reach decisions to “salvage our region that is presently battling with high rate of insecurity”.

He added that the meeting, would be attended by Governors of the five States of the zone, Ohanaeze leaders and heads of religious and traditional institutions.

Umahi begged his other Governors to endeavor to be present and not on representative capacity.

He said “Your  Excellency’s and our highly esteemed leaders, in consultation with our Governors and President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, where a decision for an urgent meeting to be called was reached.

“May I therefore invite you for an emergency meeting of Southeast Governors, some leaders of Ohaneze, some of our political leaders, some of our religious leaders and some of our traditional leaders.

“Our Leaders begged that I request all Governors of Southeast to be present at the time and not on representative capacity so that together we should reach some decisions to salvage our region that is presently battling with high rate of insecurity.

“May I therefore request that you please endeavour to attend this meeting for the sake of Ndigbo.”
