The governors of Southeast Nigeria rose from a day forum held at Imo Government House, Owerri, on Sunday July 5, 2015 with a decision not to recognise the Radio Biafra station. Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, at the end of the forum, said “the radio does not have the endorsement south east governors.’’
Anyway, Nigeria Moment believes that the Radio Biafra does not need the endorsement of the governors to function effectively. The radio station is only part of the wider media and operating as part of global information dissemination network.
He (Okorocha) said that he governors equally resolved to tackle the issue of insecurity and other social ills that had beset the people of the region.
Furthermore, the governor said the forum was concern especially over the issue of kidnapping, cultism and baby factory, among others.
Okorocha said the governors agreed on the need to adequately equip the security agencies in the region for efficient security delivery.
He said they also agreed to retain Enugu as the headquarters of the south east governors’ forum office and its economic hub.
The governors also deliberated on the agitations by the people of the zone against the Boko Haram prisoners transferred to Anambra prisons.
They appealed to the Federal Government to take a second look at the development and re-transfer the prisons to another place because of the agitations and the worries it had so far created in the zone.
