Governor Sanwo-Olu, in company of his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hazmat, received Governors Lucky Aiyedatiwa (Ondo), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Ademola Adeleke (Osun) and Biodun Oyebanji (Ekiti) at the Lagos House, Ikeja.

The meeting by the South-West Governors Forum is expected to address issues affecting the zone and Nigeria as a whole.

The close-door meeting, which started around 12noon is going on currently at Governor Sanwo-Olu’s Office in Lagos House, Ikeja.

Daily Trust reports that the meeting is coming barely four months after the demise and burial of the last chairman of the forum and former Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Daily Trust had reported that the leadership of the forum had been left void a few months after Akeredolu’s death.

Findings by Daily Trust revealed that Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State is being tipped as Akeredolu’s replacement. Other names being put are Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, and Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.

Although all the six governors from the region have decided on the next chairman, Daily Trust reports that Abiodun has tacitly placed himself for the role of the chairman
