Why I Want Southeast Governors to Work Together – Obi

The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has reiterated his call for Southeast Governors to collaborate, emphasizing that such unity is crucial for the region’s development.

Obi made this statement at Jesuit College in Port Harcourt while responding to a question seeking clarification on his previous day’s call for the Southeast Governors to work together.

Obi highlighted that the entire country faces diverse challenges, including his own Southeast zone. He expressed his desire for all regions to work collectively for the progress of their respective areas, thereby contributing to the overall development of Nigeria.

“In the case of the Southeast,” Obi said, “the problems, like elsewhere, are many. However, security is the most pressing issue. I again urge the Governors to work as a family, especially now towards solving this problem, because working in isolation will achieve less and consume more resources.”

A statement signed by Yunusa Tanko, the POMR spokesman, said Obi emphasized that now is the time for the Governors to collaborate among themselves, working towards becoming collective champions.

He suggested they engage with one another and even seek insights from former governors to share experiences.

This approach, he argued, is more effective than striving to be individual champions and failing in such selfish pursuits.

It will be recalled that Obi expressed similar sentiments while speaking to journalists in Onitsha on Saturday, where he stated: “I thank the government for their efforts so far, but there is a need to do more.

All leaders must come together to join hands and fight this. In the Southeast, the governors need to unite to tackle these challenges effectively.

“Even in economic matters, I want to see the Southeast governors work more closely. We need them to come together and also engage other groups in the zone for comprehensive development.”
