South East Governors yesterday held a crucial meeting in Enugu, apparently to discuss the high rate of insecurity in the country occasioned by the activities of the dreaded Islamic Sect, Boko Haram, especially as it affects the zone.
Though Chairman of the South East Governors Forum and Anambra State Governor, Mr Peter Obi refused to disclose details of the meeting to anxious journalists, he, however confirmed that the issue of security was discussed at the meeting which lasted for several hours.
When pressurised further to divulge the details of the meeting, Obi insisted that the resolutions reached at the meeting was not for public consumption.
“We met today in Enugu where we talked on security in the Southeast and it is not for the public. Nothing more”, Governor Obi said.
But a source close to the governors told Leadership that the governors expressed serious worry over the increasing rate of bombings in the country, especially the recent bombing of some media houses in Abuja and Kaduna State.
He stated that the Governors also deliberated on ways to make sure that the South East remained an infertile ground for perpetrators of the insecurity in the country.
Governors of Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu attended the meeting while Imo State Governor, Rochas Okoroacha was represented by his deputy, Jude Agbaso.
