The meeting was mainly attended by Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP), alongside the deputy senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

The governors include Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, Dave Umahi of Ebonyi state and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state.

At the meeting also were former governors of Anambra and Imo states, Peter Obi and Ikedi Ohakim.

Ekweremadu who addressed reporters after the meeting said the meeting was to appraise developments in the last herdsmen attack in Enugu.

“We intend to put in place endurable measures so that such attack will not happen again,” said Ekweremadu.

They also thank President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the budget and as well thanked the National Assembly for their efforts.

Ekweremadu, however, urged that the budget as it affects the South-East should be implemented thoroughly especially in the area of roads.

Said he: “We suggest and urge the Federal government to ensure that the projects captured in the budget as it affects the South-East be given to reputable contractors.”
