Seventeen southern governors will again converge on Lagos today for the second leg of their first gathering on May 11, 2021 in Asaba Delta State.
The meeting is to be hosted by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the State House, Ikeja.
The State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, was said to have confirmed that the parley would deliberate on insecurity, true federalism, open grazing, State Police, restructuring, and food security, among others.
The meeting would also discuss the aftermath of the Asaba gathering to assess if any meaningful success was made.
It would be recalled that the governors, at the last meeting, which was hosted by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and attended by 15 of the 17 Southern governors, arrived at a 12-point resolution, which included the banning of open grazing of cattle in all the states.
