By Bukola Olasanmi

The South-East Governors’ Forum   has resolved to meet President Muhammadu Buhari over the closure of the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, as well as the welfare of the people in the region.
The Minister of Aviation,  Hadi Sirika, last week told  the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation that N10bn was needed   to  rehabilitate  the runway and fix other things at the airport.
However, briefing reporters  after the meeting with Ohanaeze Ndigbo, religious leaders and South-East National Assembly Caucus in Enugu, the Chairman of the forum, David Umahi, said they had  resolved to  meet  with Buhari  following  fears that  the airport could be abandoned.

“We have  resolved to meet with  the President for the welfare of our people in South-East,” the Ebonyi State Governor added.
Governors Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and  Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) attended the meeting. Imo  State was represented by Deputy  Gerald Irona  while  Anambra was not represented.
The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo attended the meeting where Enyinaya Abaribe represented the members of the region  in the National Assembly.
