GovernorsGovernors of South East and South South zones have called on the Federal Government to pay more attention in bringing infrastructural development in the two zones.

The Chairman South East and South South Governors Forum, Mr. Emmanuel Udom stated this while briefing newsmen at the end of their meeting held at the Imo State Government House, Owerri.
