Five out of the six governors of the South-South geo-political zone have arrived Rivers State Government House, for a crucial meeting.

Although the agenda of the meeting is yet to be disclosed but a source close to government house said, the top issues to be discussed maybe the zoning of the presidency to the south in 2023, the Value Added Tax (VAT) controversies among others.

The first governor to arrive was Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, followed by Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta , Emmanuel Udom (Akwa-Ibom) and Douye Diri of Bayelsa State.

The Cross Rivers State governor Ben Ayade is yet to arrive but there are speculations that he may not attend the meeting due his recent defection to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
