Governors of the six Southwest states will converge on Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, to deliberate on measures to tackle the increasing challenges posed by militants in the region.

The six chief executives of Lagos, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Osun and Ekiti are to meet next Monday.

The meeting is being convened under aegis of the South West Governors’ Forum.

According to a statement by the Secretary to the Ogun State Government, Taiwo Adeoluwa, some of the areas to be discussed include: “export development initiatives for the Western region, security, in view of the current contemporary unwholesome activities of some criminal elements parading themselves as militants now ravaging parts of the region.”

The SSG also disclosed that the meeting would afford the governors opportunity to discuss the security of the zone “in view of the current contemporary unwholesome activities of some criminal elements parading themselves as militants now ravaging parts of the region.”
