Soyinka said the meeting was put on hold in honour of Dipo Famakinwa, director-general of the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) commission.
“The south-west governors have decided to put the meeting on hold in honour of the director-general of the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria (DAWN) commission, Mr. Dipo Famakinwa, who sadly passed away on Friday, April 21, 2017,” Soyinka said in a statement.
