In addition, the governors acknowledged the efforts of the Federal Government in addressing insecurity in the South East. They declared that perpetrators and their sponsors in the South East are mere criminals who should not be dignified as legitimate agitators, but dealt with in line with the provisions of the law. They pledged to cooperate with the Federal Government in ensuring the security of lives and property in the South East.


Finally, the governors of the South East expressed their gratitude to the Federal Government for their support and collaboration and pledged to continue to work together for the betterment of the region.
