Governors of the South-East states met on Friday at the Government House, Enugu to deliberate on the preparations for the burial of elder-statesman and former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, scheduled to hold on Friday,  February 2, 2018.

Briefing journalists, the Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. David Umahi stated that the governors were “very committed” to the programme, stressing that their presence at the gathering underscores the seriousness they had attached to "this important burial of our late father”.

Umahi noted that Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, who was represented by his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere had travelled“out of the South East.”

Umahi added that the governors studied the budget for the burial, disclosing that the timetable was out and the details were with the Director General of the Forum.

“We as Governors of the South East have set up a committee headed by the Director General of our forum, and he has been working very hard with the members of the committee especially the committee members from Anambra State.”

He said that the forum also reviewed its previous deliberations on the railway for the South East, gas to industrial zones and other issues such as the recently held South East Economic Summit.
