Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has emerged as the new Chairman of the South South Governors Forum following a meeting recorded as the first to be held shortly after the unveiling of the Calabar International Convention Centre.

The governors of the BRACED Commission unanimously endorsed Oshiomhole following his wealth of experience which other South South state governors believe can be beneficial to the region.

Oshiomhole, speaking after unveiling the Calabar International Convention Center in Cross River State, South South Nigeria, described the centre as a beautiful image to Nigeria’s Tourism Sector.

Speaking on the importance of the 5,000 Capacity Calabar International Convention Centre to the South South region, the new chairman described the edifice as a well packaged parting gift from Liyel Imoke to not just Cross River State but the South South region and Nigeria as a whole.

The Comrade Governor, who was overwhelmed by the project, described Liyel Imoke as a silent achiever in spite of the financial constraints the state is faced with.

Oshiomhole reasoned that by this feat, Imoke has laid a solid foundation for his successor to build on, thereby boosting the tourism map of the state.

In his remarks, Imoke disclosed that, the project which was 95% complete, is a catalyst to bringing alive other tourism related investments in the state.

The BRACED comprises of Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Cross River, Edo and Delta States and had in attendance representatives who were part of installing its new leadership.
