Governors committed to Jonathan administration

21 October 2013, 06:40

Enugu - Governors of the South-East and South-South have expressed their commitment to the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan and to improve economic cooperation in the two zones.

Addressing the media at the end of their meeting in Enugu on Sunday, Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River said that the governors’ commitment was part of the issues the governors reiterated at the meeting.

Imoke, who is also the Chairman of the South-South Governors’ Forum, said the governors also resolved to give Jonathan their support.

He said that the meeting also discussed issues of common interest aimed at promoting unity in the zones, adding that the governors were ready to give Jonathan support.

“Governors of the South-East and South- South met again today. We deliberated extensively on the same issues that we discussed previously in our last meeting.”

“Those deliberations are that we will continue to ensure that we focus on economic cooperation and unity and of course, focusing on our collective interest,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that governors Theodore Orji of Abia, Sullivan Chime of Enugu, Peter Obi of Anambra, and Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta attended the meeting.

Governors Martin Elechi of Ebonyi and Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa were represented by their deputies: Dave Umahi and John Gboribiogha, respectively.
