LEGISREPORTS NG – A faction of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum led by its Chairman, Jonah Jang, Governor of Plateau State, has summoned a meeting of the forum slated to hold Sunday night.The meeting, which is scheduled to hold in Abuja will be presided over by Governor Jang.It was gathered also that an invitation to was sent to his counterpart, the Rivers state Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, who chairs the other faction of the NGF. LEGISREPORTS recalls that Amaechi won the last chairmanship election of the Forum with 19 votes going to him, and 16 to Jang, but the governor of Plateau State had described the result and outcome of the election as lacking transparency.Jang therefore had since claimed to the leadership of the forum as its authentic Chairman, one that led to an opening of a parallel secretariat.On the other hand, 11 governors in the opposition political parties have their allegiance to Governor Amaechi who Chairs the parallel NGF faction, except the governors of Ondo and Anambra States, who have staunchly refused to identify with him. This report was prepared by our reporter in Abuja.
