The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun has emerged the Chairman of the Southern Governors' Forum by the consensus of all of his other colleagues present at the Forum's meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.

It would be recalled that late Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State led the forum until his demise in 2023.

Announcing the resolution of the Southern State Executives after the meeting, the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwoolu, said the decision of the forum was unanimous and in line with their conviction on the leadership acumen of Abiodun to successfully lead the forum.

In his reaction, Governor Dapo Abiodun expressed appreciation for the confidence reposed in him to take the mantle of leadership of the forum, as he promised to lead with inclusiveness and efficiency.

He added that he would work assiduously with his Vice, Professor Charles Soludo,  who is the Governor of Anambra State to proactively address fundamental issues of regional interests. 

"This is indeed  a significant honour bestowed on me by my esteemed  colleagues, and I deeply appreciate their confidence in my leadership. Together, we will strive to ensure quality governance across our states and collectively engender exceptional regional development throughout Southern Nigeria.

"I also extend my congratulations to my colleague, Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State, who has been elected as the Vice Chairman," he said.
