The South-West states of Nigeria, under the auspices of ‘the South-West Governors’ Forum, on Monday, June 10, 2024, met in Lagos, where they discussed issues about the development of the region.

Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Lagos, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, Ondo, Dapo Abiodun Ogun, Seyi Makinde, Oyo, Ademola Adeleke, Osun, and Biodun Oyebanji, Ekiti, attended the meeting.

At the meeting, the governors unanimously and officially adopted What translates as “A song for our region” as the Yoruba anthem which has generated mixed reactions.

One of these prominent voices is the former chairman, Trade Union Congress, TUC, Ekiti State chapter, Mr. Kolawole Olaiya who describes the new regional anthem as a misplaced priority, and instead, urges them to prioritize the welfare and security of the citizens by coming up with an acceptable new minimum wage.
