A 24-member Technical Committee to drive the regional integration of the South West was inaugurated in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti on Thursday by Gov. Kayode Fayemi.
Inaugurating the committee on behalf of the governors of the seven states of old western Nigeria, the governor charged members to work toward achieving greater socio-economic and infrastructure development of the people of the region.
Fayemi described the regional integration as an approach to reinvent the pace-setting achievements of the western region under the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
The 24 member- committee comprises three members each from the seven subscribing states and three members from the Yoruba Academy Think Tank, producers of the Development Agenda of Western Nigeria (DAWN) document.
