At the end of the meeting which held at the Government House in Enugu State, the governors resolved to launch a regional security outfit.
They affirmed their commitment towards concluding the establishment of the Joint South East Security Outfit to tackle the daunting security challenges in the region.
The chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum and Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, disclosed this to reporters after the first meeting of the forum in the year 2020.
Governor Umahi, however, said they have yet to choose a name for the security outfit, adding that would come later
He said the leaders have written the Federal Government in this regard and were equally satisfied with the arrangement that would lead to the enactment of the law to back up the programme in all Houses of Assembly across the region.
