Former governor of Anambra State,Mr Peter Obi and other stakeholders at the summit has decried the level of bad governance in the country, especially in the South East and South South zone.
Obi who spoke through a former aide in his cabinet ,Professor Chiyenre Okunna maintained that the lack of confidence  against the leaders by those they governed is a justification of their disconnection with the people .
According to Obi "many people in power today are not giving food governance, and that is why they lack the support of their people"
While describing the leaders as selfish ,and insensitive to the rule of law,he advised governors of the zones to meet regularly to chat a common front.
"personal communication with the people matters ,they must reach out to the grassroots ,governors should be willing to sacrifice their personal comfort for those they governed ,they should show accountability ,responsiveness and obey the rule of law" Obi said.
