South-West Governors have met in Lagos and discussed issues of interest.
EKOHOTBLOG reports that members of South-West Governors Forum on Tuesday met in Lagos State to discuss issues of interest to the region.
The South-West Governors were hosted by the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, at the State House, Marina, Lagos.
But for Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, who was represented by his deputy, Mr Rauf Olaniyan, all the other five governors were present at the meeting which started at 4.30 p.m., behind closed doors.
After 90 minutes, the governors rose from the meeting and offered no detailed information on matters discussed.
However, the chairman of the Forum and Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, who addressed newsmen briefly, disclosed that part of their deliberations bordered on security situation in the region.
Akeredolu revealed there was also discussion on Oodua Group, a company owned by all six South-West States, but declined to give further details.
The governor further pointed out that the Forum was not willing to share full information on the meeting.
He said, “We, the six Governors of the South-West under the South-West Governors’ Forum met today. We deliberated on a number of common and personal issues. We also deliberated on our common heritage, which is the Oodua Group of Companies.
“At the end, we agreed on a few things; a number of them, which have to do with security, are not what we can discuss in the open. This short address is just to let you (pressmen) know we met today but we don’t want our decisions discussed in the open,” Akeredolu stated.
