Governors of the South East region of the Country have restated their earlier stand that no part of the region is available for the RUGA Program.
The Governors stated this in a Communique read on their behalf by the Chairman of the Forum of South East Governors and Ebonyi State Governor, Engr Dave Umahi, on the sidelines of their meeting at the Enugu State Government House.
The Forum reaffirmed their belief that the South East has comparative advantages in agriculture and resolved to put funds together to fund our people who are interested in Rice, Cassava, Cow rearing, Piggery, Goat rearing, Poultry, Fishery and some other cash crops permitted by our soil and advised Igbos who are interested in these areas to contact their States for further engagement.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu is part of the meeting.
The meeting is still on as I post this as the Forum is about meeting with various committees and interest groups.
Full details of the Communique will be made available on this page shortly.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.
