Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State has emerged chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum with the pledge to move the zone forward.

Orji takes over from Peter Obi, whose tenure as governor of Anambra State comes to an end next week Monday.

The governors met on Sunday for over five hours at the Enugu State Government House. The meeting was attended by some stakeholders.

Obi told journalists that there was nothing unusual about the meeting of governors from the South-East, which he said is for the overall development of the region.

He said, “We met for our usual meeting in the South-East and for our overall development. We met to select a new chairman for the forum. As you know, I will be handing over on March, 17. The new chairman is governor of Abia State.

“He will steer the mantle of leadership of the forum haven completed my tenure. I urge you all, especially the media, to give him the support that you gave to me during my tenure”.

In his acceptance speech, Orji thanked his colleagues for unanimously electing him the chairman.

“I pledge to move the South-East region forward especially in the area of economic development. Obviously, this task is a daunting one but with the cooperation of my colleagues, I will surely accomplish this task.

“I also assure you that I will move the region to the next level with the active participation of all stakeholders”, he said.
