Governors of Nigeria’s South-East region yesterday declared their stand of Radio Biafra, saying that the separatist megaphone does not have their endorsement.

The governors rose from a day forum held at Imo Government House, Owerri, with a decision not to recognise the radio station.

Gov. Rochas Okorocha, at the end of the forum, said “the radio does not have the endorsement South-East governors.”

He said that he governors equally resolved to tackle the issue of insecurity and other social ills that had beset the people of the region. Security issues of highlighted by the forum included kidnapping, cultism and baby factory, among others.

Okorocha said the governors agreed on the need to adequately equip the security agencies in the region for efficient security delivery.

He disclosed that they agreed to retain Enugu as the headquarters of the Forum office and its economic hub.

The governors also deliberated on the agitations by the people of the zone against the Boko Haram prisoners transferred to Anambra prisons.

They appealed to the Federal Government to take a second look at the development and re-transfer the prisons to another place because of the agitations and the worries it had so far created in the zone.
