South East Governors, leaders storm Abuja, present requests to Buhari

South-East Governors and leaders on Thursday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa and demanded for special fund for the rehabilitation of the Akanu Ibiam Airport in Enugu State.

Chairman of the South East Governors Forum, David Umahi, spoke to reporters on behalf of the group.

Umahi said the group also sought for declaration of state of emergency on roads and erosion in the South East.

He said, ”We are here to kindly urge Mr. President to approve special fund for the Akanu Ibiam Airport just like what was done for Abuja Airport.”

The Ebonyi State Governor pointed out that the closure of the Enugu airport has grounded activities in the region and causing great hardship on the people.
