Members of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) have applauded the resolutions of Southern Governors on restructuring, state of insecurity, open grazing and others.
Sneh Tv reports that a meeting of Governors of the 17 states of the Southern region was held in Asaba Delta State on Tuesday to review the current state of the Nation especially as it concerns the spiking state of insecurity, activities of herdsmen/ open grazing, the 1999 constitution, Federal appointments, among other issues, and critical decisions were taken.
Thirteen of the Governors were present in the meeting; two states were represented by their Deputy Governors, while two others were conspicuously absent.
PANDEF in a statement in Port Harcourt, Rivers state Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Ken Robinson praised the decisions of the Governors, describing it as far reaching.
The group also commended the agreement by the Leaders to meet to discuss these boiling issues that are seriously threatening the unity of the nation, noting that the gathering was fruitful and met PANDEF’s expectations.
Robinson in the statement said, “PANDEF applauds the meeting of 17 southern governors, decisions on restructuring, insecurity, skewed federal appointments, open grazing among others.
“With the things going on in the country, we had expected them to meet before now but it is a good thing that they have met. It is a welcomed development.
“This would not only foster cooperation among the governors and people of the southern states but also strengthen the nation’s democracy.
“We have also seen the communique that they issued. It is very commendable.
“Their resolutions reemphasized our positions, particularly, on restructuring; open grazing, and the alarming state of insecurity.”
