BREAKING: Governor Sanwo-Olu elected chairman of South West Governors’ Forum

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has been elected as the Chairman of the South West Governors’ Forum during its ongoing meeting in Lagos.

Governor Sanwo-Olu will now lead the forum, representing the collective interests of the South West states.

Governors from South West states convened at the Lagos House in Ikeja, Lagos State, for their zonal meeting earlier today.

The meeting is attended by Governors Lucky Aiyedatiwa (Ondo), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Ademola Adeleke (Osun), and Biodun Oyebanji (Ekiti).

The closed-door meeting began around noon at Governor Sanwo-Olu’s office.

This gathering comes nearly four months after the death and burial of the last chairman of the forum, former Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu. Since Akeredolu’s passing, the leadership of the forum has remained vacant.
