The South-East Governors Forum, on Friday, met in Enugu to deliberate on arrangements for the burial of Second Republic Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, coming up on February 2, 2018.

Briefing journalists after the meeting, Chairman of the Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, said the governors are committed to the success of the burial.

“Our presence at this meeting underscores the seriousness the governors have attached to this important burial of our late father,” Umahi said.
