In his welcome address, Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha said the idea of the two regions uniting have helped the eleven governors to appreciate  themselves and work together  despite political differences.
He said that the existence of the Forum has helped to dispel the suspicion that existed between leaders and people of the two regions.

regions to go in one political direction during the next dispensation.
