Southern Governors: Abiodun calls for regional cohesion

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has emerged as the Chairman of Southern Governors’ Forum by consensus among the sixteen Governors present at the meeting held in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

It would be recalled that the late Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State led the forum until his demise in 2023.

Announcing the resolution of the Southern State Executives after the meeting, the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said the decision of the forum was unanimous and in line with their conviction on the leadership acumen of Abiodun to successfully lead the forum.

In his reaction, Governor Dapo Abiodun expressed appreciation for the confidence reposed in him to take the mantle of leadership of the forum, as he promised to lead with inclusiveness and efficiency.

He added that he would work committed with his Vice, Professor Charles Soludo,  who is the Governor of Anambra State to proactively address fundamental issues of regional interests.

“This is indeed  a significant honour bestowed on me by my esteemed  colleagues, and I deeply appreciate their confidence in my leadership. Together, we will strive to ensure quality governance across our states and collectively engender exceptional regional development throughout Southern Nigeria.

“I also extend my congratulations to my colleague, Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State, who has been elected as the Vice Chairman,” he said.
