In order to establish an economic union to reap the abundant benefits of inter-state collaboration, South South/South East Network (SESSNet) has concluded arrangements to hold its maiden conference on the 18th April at Links Hotel in Owerri, Imo State capital.

SESSNet is a Civic Action, nonprofit organisation focusing on education and advocacy, providing civic engagement tools to the public, and building the progressive movement by encouraging and supporting the development of more grassroots leaders.

The conference with the theme, “South South & South East; Towards Greater Economic Union”, is expected to host stakeholders from South South and South East region of the country; State Governors and their relevant commissioners. Others are private and public sector operators in the region and also the general public interested in the SESSNet agenda.

The group in an official statement issued yesterday and jointly signed by the National Coordinators, Messrs Emmanuel Ohai, Dowell Mirin and Chief Aloysius Osuji stated that issues to discussed at the conference include: fiscal federalism, economic integration, political integration and inter – regional commerce amongst South South and South East states.

According to SESSNet, the fora will give the South South and South East states an ample opportunity to focus on its natural resources in developing areas of its comparative advantage and ultimately entrench inter-regional trade and commerce.

Lamenting that the region has been stunted by inherent contradictions of the Nigerian State, SESSNet further stated that South South and South East has an enormous and the greatest potentials in terms of human, economic and natural resources in Sub Saharan Africa.

Launched in December, 2016, SESSNet, is a progressive, digitally-connected organising group in Nigeria. The group is pioneered online, organising and creating advocacy techniques that have become standard in politics, nonprofits, and the industrial sector globally.

Its major agenda include: to create a South-East/South-South Economic union; work towards transforming Nigeria into a true federation that works for the people by restructuring the country to reflect fiscal federalism; create a South-South/South-East network of dedicated professionals to synergise and assume leadership positions and to educate and enlighten the youths in the region to take control of their destiny.
