Pagan Amum, the South Sudan Chief negotiator on the post secession issues told the press shortly after the meeting that the sitting was aimed at intensifying the understanding on the agreements.

“The President had briefed the Governors and the meeting concluded with the governors endorsing and supporting the cooperation agreement signed on the 27 (September) between the government of the Republic of South Sudan (RSS) and the government of the Republic of Sudan,” Pagan said.

“And the President and the governors with the participation of the negotiating team have discussed the process of implementation of this agreement starting with plan to take this agreement for ratification by the South Sudan National Assembly, (SSNA),” Pagan added.

Key questions were been raised on the four freedoms enshrined in the deal on citizenship and question on disputed areas in Northern Bahr el Ghazal.

There had been much protest by citizens in Northern Bahr el Ghazal on the agreement on Mile 14 which has remained as part of the issues with Abyei unagreed up on last month by the two governments.

Critics such as academicians and activists among South Sudanese have also remained hard over the citizenship and oil agreement. Meanwhile others say the citizenship deal benefits Sudanese nationals other critics said the oil deal lacks mechanisms of transparency which will make it hard for citizens to understand the sales.

“It has been agreed further to explain the security agreement and remove the worries that has been developed of either misunderstanding or confusion caused by people who have not read the agreement and confusing the security agreement and the disputed areas,” Pagan said.

The South Sudan National Assembly is expected to ratify the agreements next week on Monday.
