Gov. Umahi noted that the Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, who was represented by his deputy, Prince Eze Madumere, was “out of the South East” and couldn’t attend the meeting in person.

The Chairman of the forum added that the governors studied the budget for the burial, disclosing that the timetable was out and the details are with the Director General of the Forum.

He said that the forum also reviewed its previous deliberations on the railway for the South East, gas to industrial zones and other issues such as the recently held South East Economic Summit.
