15 Out Of 17 Governors Present In Southern Governors Forum Meeting by Ctorch: 11:29am On May 05, 2021
Governors in the Southern part of the country under the Southern Nigeria Governors Forum on Tuesday met to discuss the state of the nation.

The meeting which was held virtually was at the instance of the chairman of the South West governors forum, Rotimi Akeredolu and the chairmen of both South-South and South-East Governors’ Forums Ifeanyi Okowa and David Umahi of Ondo, Delta and Ebonyi respectively.

Vanguard was informed that fifteen of the 17 Governors from the Southern part attended the meeting.

They include; Ekiti State Governor who doubles as Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Dr Kayode Fayemi, Nyesom Wike(Rivers), Ifeanyi Okowa(Delta), David Umahi(Ebonyi), Godwin Obaseki,(Edo), and Lolo Cecilia Ezeilo(deputy governor of Enugu representing the governor).

Others are Douye Diri(Bayelsa), Emmanuel Udom(Akwa Ibom), Okezie Victor Ikpeazu(Abia), Hope Uzodimma(Imo), Dapo Abiodun(Ogun), Gboyega Oyetola (Osun), Seyi Makinde(Oyo) and Babajide Sanwo-Olu(Lagos).

The Governors who called for commitment and unity in addressing issues that affect the country, particularly Southern Nigeria, stressed the need to put the country first in the face of the trying times.
The full details of the outcome of the meeting were still sketchy as of press time.

Vanguard was however informed that part of the governor’s resolution was to meet in Asaba, the Delta State Capital, next week to harmonize positions aimed at dousing the tension in the country.
But a source close to one of the governors said although the meeting was long overdue, the move by the three governors was commendable.

The source said “The three governors, especially the chairman of the Southwest Governors Forum have provided good leadership and direction to the extent that a proper path to confidence-building has been laid.

“It is coming a bit late but it has largely shown that there are still leaders who think of the nation’s unity first before any other.
“The kernel of the meeting was that Nigeria is too important to let into a conflagration. It’s a good move, no doubt”, he said.

From What I see there, All the Governors were fully present


The issue remains if the security issues were addressed.... successfully..


15 is enough Majority...... Everybody must not be there.

Any meeting that is not geared towards the emancipation of the foolishness of the south from the false entity called Nigeria is just an exercise in futility.
Even the foolish Wike and Uzodinma who called on the fulani-controlled army to unleash anarchy on their states are there-discussing what?

Have they seen governors Matawalle,Bala Mohammed (Bauchi) or Mohammed Bello(Niger State or even the mumu senator obsessed with hate speech/social media regulation bills while bandits/BH have taken over areas in his constituency) calling for military onslaught on their states even with the banditry /BH terrorism?

The best communique would be a call for referendum into the different unit in Southern Nigeria. Any other thing is just a waste of time. Gas lighting and asslicking

This is long overdue. With the way things are currently going, any section that isn't aligning and realigning will have themselves to blame. Nigeria's breakup has become very clear but what is not clear is the form it will take.

disregard this cow submission, he's not Yoruba. no sane Yoruba will support Tinubu to become President


a capitalist, self egocentric idiot and a wicked heartless political sycophant fool



Yoruba is interested in either disintegration or restructuring of this country because if the power is shifted to south aboki won't still allow the country to progress with their stubbornness and backwardness


ordinary don't graze publicly declared by some state Governors, they can't obey



restructuring/disintegration is what average sane Yoruba are interested in
