The South-East Governors’ Forum has announced plans to construct a 430-kilometre ring road that would connect all the states of the zone, to promote the economic development of the region and ease transportation.

This was contained in a communiqué released after a meeting of the forum in Enugu on Sunday.

According to the communiqué read by Chairman of the Forum, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, the South-East governors at its meeting discussed extensively the possible strategies to achieve the economic development of the South-East.

According to the communiqué, the governors resolved “to undertake the construction of ring road covering a total of 430 kilometres, that would connect all the states of the South-East, to promote economic development and ease of transportation system in the region.

“The governors took presentations for gas pipelines in the South-East and advised consultants to follow up on details of presentations, especially as it affects the right of way.

They “commended the presentation of Abia State Independent Power Project by Professor Barth Nnaji and asked him to liaise with the secretariat for further implementation with the presidency.

They “received presentations on several issues, especially from National Addressing System and the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) on assessment of MDA’s for effective performance.

“A private business enterprise presented to the Forum a lottery business proposal in the South-East zone. After much deliberations, the forum advised him to reach out to the various states of the South-East in going about the proposal.”

The forum also directed the five South-East states chairmen of Traditional Rulers Council to be invited for the amicable resolution of their crisis in its next meeting.

The forum equally expressed deep appreciation to the governors and the people of the South-East for the able way they worked together to give the former vice president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr Alex Ekwueme, a befitting burial and enjoined them to continue in such spirit to move the South-East forward.

Other governors who attended the meeting include, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), and Deputy Governor of Imo State, Eze Madumere, who represented Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha. (INDEPENDENT)
