Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, who is also the Chairman of South-East Governors Forum is presiding over the meeting that is exclusively for governors and deputies.

Among serious issues of concern in the region is the status of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, and the issue of insecurity in the southeast.

The South-East region has been experiencing a series of attacks recently by gunmen who attack security formations, terrorise residents and also kidnap for ransom.

Only recently, over 30 commuters along Enugu-Nsukka Road were kidnapped including ex and present government officials, magistrates, students and other citizens.

Kanu is being prosecuted by the Federal Government on various treason and terrorism-related charges.

Two weeks ago, the Appeal Court in Abuja dropped all charges against separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu after ruling that he had been illegally arrested abroad.

However, in a ruling on Friday, Haruna Tsanami leading a panel of the Court of Appeal, in Abuja, ordered that the enforcement of the judgment releasing Kanu be put on hold.

The Federal Government had applied that the execution of the judgment is suspended pending the resolution of its appeal filed at the Supreme Court.
