Ekwunife Visits Otti, Lauds S’East Governors’ Efforts At Addressing Insecurity



The Director General, (DG) South-East Governors’ Forum, (SEGOF) Senator Uche Ekwunife, Wednesday visited the Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Otti, at his country home, Nvosi, Isiala Ngwa South.

The visit is part of the Director General’s agenda to familiarize herself with the governors for smooth running of office, and to seek their support to achieve her mandate.

Ekwunife commended Abia Governor for the warm reception, while applauding him for hitting the ground running within a short time.


She pledged to work with the Governors to drive the development of the region.

The Senator described Abia as a commercial centre which is fertile for investors, and urged the Governors to collaborate on Inter-state roads and rail networks, so as to connect the region commercially and build a viable economic bloc.

On the issue of insecurity, Ekwunife applauded the Governors of the Southeast for their efforts in seeking a lasting solution to the situation, adding that more awareness should be created at local levels to permanently end insecurity in the region.

While noting that Southeast remains vital for the economic stability of the country, the Senator called for synergy among the Governors, traditional rulers and local vigilante in various communities to put the region on the part of progress.

“Without security of lives and property, the economy cannot thrive because no investor will have confidence to invest in an unsecured zone, and I must commend the Southeast Governors for coming together to tackle it as a common challenge”, the DG remarked.
