Achebe’ll Be Given A Befitting Burial – Southeast Govs

SE GOVSThe Southeast Governors’ Forum rose from a meeting yesterday in Enugu State and resolved to give the late renowned writer, Professor Chinua Achebe, a befitting burial.

The forum also resolved that Achebe should be given a proper honour because he brought honour not only to Nigeria but to Africa.

The Forum Chairman and Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, who addressed reporters after the meeting, said the Forum had received the report of the committee set up to resolve the crisis in the Igbo socio-cultural Organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The governor told reporters that stakeholders and the governor also deliberated on security and infrastructure in the region.

“Our meeting today is based on three items. We have received the report of Ohanaeze committee, which was set up by the Governors’ Forum.

“We have received the report, which we will look into to enable us come up with a position,” he said.

Present at the meeting were Governors Theodore Orji (Abia), Martin Elechi (Ebonyi), Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Inter- Party Affairs, Senator Ben Obi, among others.
