The convener of the summit, Governor Akeredolu, who is chairman of the South West Governors’ Forum, has assured that the proposed security summit would put an end to the activities of marauding herdsmen and address the insecurity challenges in the region.
Speaking on what to expect after the summit, the Chief Press Secretary to Akeredolu, Segun Ajiboye said: “You know we have held a security summit here in Ondo State and our governor is now taking the initiative to other states in the region.
“Governors of the six states at the meeting will find solutions to the menace. “I want to assure the people of the region that an end is in sight to the spate of insecurity in the South West.”
“There will be a solution to these problems after the summit.”
