South West governors say nothing will didvide them

Ibadan - Governors of the six states in the South-Western geo-political zone have resolved to forge a common front at regional integration by jointly staving off external influences capable of stifling the region’s economic and social interests, Vanguard reports.

Irrespective of their political affiliations, the governors said they have decided to be their brother’s keepers by promoting common programmes and projects capable of enhancing the human capital development of the region.

This was one of the highlights of the meeting of the governors’ economic forum, hosted yesterday by the Governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, at the Executive Council Chambers, in Ibadan.

The governors mulled the need to introduce uniform tariffs on commodities, while agreeing on the need to seek areas of cooperation in agriculture, transportation, rail system, sports and other areas of common interest.

Other governors at the meeting were Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State; Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State; Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State; and Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, while Secretary to Ondo State Government, Rotimi Adelola, represented the Governor Olusegun Mimiko.

News24 previously reported that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu and three of the APC governors in the South-West were again absent at the campaign rally of the party held in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Saturday.

The governors were, governors of Lagos, Oyo and Osun States, Akinwumi Ambode, Abiola Ajimobi and Rauf Aregbosola respectively.
